A top-down crescent/triangle hybrid shawl – the perfect choice for those who love wrapping up in shawls with long tails. The main section begins as a garter stitch triangle, then transitions to short rows for crescent shaping. The traditional multicolor feather and fan border provides a beautiful finish.

20 sts and 44 rows = 4” in Gtr st. Take time to save time, check your gauge.

The removable marker is placed directly in the center stitch (and not on the needle between stitches). Move this marker up as you work so it is always easy to identify the center stitch.

At the end of each short row section, do not work the wraps together with the wrapped stitches. Instead, work each wrap as a separate stitch to increase the stitch count in preparation for the feather and fan border.
