Tyrian by Sivia Harding is a top-down triangle shawl in 2 sizes is worked in regal geometric, textured lace patterns. Beads are placed using the add-as-you-go crochet hook method.

Harding was inspired with this very special color..."Tyrian purple (Greek, πορφύρα, porphyra, Latin: purpura), also known as royal purple, imperial purple or imperial dye, is a reddish-purple natural dye, which is a secretion produced by certain species of predatory sea snails in the family Muricidae, a type of rock snail by the name Murex. This dye was possibly first used by the ancient Phoenicians as early as 1600 BCE. The dye was greatly prized in antiquity because the colour did not easily fade, but instead became brighter with weathering and sunlight. It was historically used for royal clothing." Dream yourself royal as you enjoy knitting this lovely beaded shawl!
