Havasu Falls is a crescent shaped shawl that transitions from a solid stockinette fabric to a beautiful lace border and is perfect for gradient yarns. It is knit from the top down and is easily customizable to get the size you want! The lace pattern can be started at any point. Instructions for customizing it are included.

Both charted and full written instructions are included.

The lace pattern has no rest rows so you must be comfortable with lace patterning on both sides. The end result is worth it!
