A weightless crescent shawl is the perfect accessory to wear with summer dresses or to double around your throat for an accent of delicate texture against wool blazers when autumn arrives. Haro begins with a firm cast-on for the full length of the upper edge; short rows shape a crescent of garter stitch that gives way to tranquil forest motifs. This relatively quiet design aims to make the most of Plains’s subtly rustic character and to offer newer lace knitters an accessible challenge; instructions are both written and charted. Fir Cone lace is easy to work and beautifully effective. By the time you reach the tree forms in the edging, you’ll be ready to work lace on both sides without “resting rows.” Haro takes its name from the misty strait west of San Juan Island, where Sarah grew up. Morandi, shown in the sample, reflects foggy island mornings, but consider Scarab for a bright accent or Flurry for a sweetly feminine look.


  • This shawl is worked flat on a circular needle from the top down, beginning with a Cabled Cast On for the full width of the piece.
  • The crescent shape is achieved through Short Rows: Wrap & Turn Method.
