Adella is a beautiful half circle shawl that is worked from top down. In fact, it is more of a three-quarter shawl which will stay on the shoulder because of the shape. To create an eye-pleasing look, popcorns have been added at points of increases every other row until shawl is at the appropriate length. The bottom edge is a row of popcorns and to complete the look.
