Anniken Allis’s exquisite crescent shawl will be enthralling to knit, thanks to its mix of lace stitches, techniques such as the Turkish cast-on and Russian cast-off, and an unusual edging. The show-stopping edging is knitted on to the live stitches of the centre panel. The shawl is knitted in a wool-silk laceweight yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners.

Find a tutorial for the Turkish Garter Tab Cast and Russian Cast Off. There are more tutorials by Anniken here.
