An airy shawlette with a stockinette body and delicate yet simple lace border that resembles crocuses. This piece is a perfect wrap for late spring and summer evenings. The narrow crescent shape is worked top-down and achieved with rapid increasing at each edge, allowing you to choose your final size as you knit.
The samples are shown in fingering weight yarn, but any weight yarn may be used (adjust yardage accordingly).
Skill level: Easy to intermediate. Written instructions are used, with a schematic of the Crocus stitch for reference.
