This pattern is available as part The Cumulus Collection in print and as an ebook, which launches at Fyberspates stockists on Friday 9th November 2018.

This pretty lace crescent shawl is knitted from the top down and starts with a simple eyelet top edge. The body of the shawl is then worked in stocking stitch, with short rows to create a curved shape. A lace border is then worked along the bottom edge, finishing with a picot cast off.

Instructions for the lace sections are provided as written instructions, with optional charts for those who prefer them, so if charts aren’t for you, don’t worry.
