The night is bright when the moon is shining, whether you can see only a small crescent or an impressive full blood moon. Quarter and crescents, Bright Night Shawl shows them all, with a gigantic full moon worked in the middle. It is worked top down, with two or three colors of your choice, and combines several knitting techniques - stranded colorwork, fading colors, garter stitch, stockinette stitch, cross stitches and simple lace - for a project that is always interesting, just like the moon.
