This elegant crescent shawl has beads for added glamour. Perfect to wear over an evening dress or around your neck as a scarf on a chilly day. Valentina is worked from the top down with increases on every other row to create the crescent shape.

Exact tension is not essential but a difference in tension may affect the final size and amount of yarn used.
I recommend starting Valentina with a Garter Tab which starts with a provisional cast on. But a Garter Tab with a regular cast on can be used.
