Hunter Moon is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the top down. The body of the shawl uses a simple lace pattern, and the border is worked in a variation of the Old Shale pattern. This shawl is designed to work with any fingering weight yarn, but it showcases variegated, hand-dyed yarns particularly well, allowing both the patterns of the lace and the colours of the yarn to shine without competing against one another.

The sample shawl was knit in Pixie by Dragonfly Fibers (colourway: Cherry on Top), and measures approximately 75” along the top edge, 15” deep, and 87” along the curve (190x38x220cm).

Materials and Tools:
425-450 yards of fingering weight yarn
4 mm (US size 6) knitting needles, straight or circular
tapestry needle for weaving in ends
pins, wires, and mat for blocking
optional: 2 stitch markers for marking increase stitches at the edge of the shawl

Difficulty: advanced beginner

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
