The First Impressions shawl, with its pattern of semi-circular bands, was inspired by the ripples on the pond where Monet grew his famous water lilies – which in turn inspired so many of his Impressionist paintings.
The crescent shaped shawl features garter stitch bands interspersed with stockinette stitch with a super simple lace pattern. Gentle pleats finish it off.
A solid or gently variegated yarn will be shown to advantage in the cozy, pretty shawl.
A very relaxing knit, this pattern is perfect for TV knitting or social knitting.

Shawl is worked top down, with increases at each side.

There are 2 sizes: one size can be completed with 100g of fingering weight yarn, the larger size will use about 155g of yarn.

NOTE: For a limited time, you may order this specially-dyed colorway of yarn (Camille) or a matching project bag, or both, from my Etsy Shop. See HERE.. All details in the Etsy listing.
