While working on the rectangular shawl, I thought that the stitch would look lovely worked up as a triangular one as well. The model shows how the shawl looks with contrasting beads—beads that match the yarn would give an even more subtle effect. Nupps could be knit instead of the beads, or those stitches could be simply knit, if a simpler garment is desired.
