Linen Weave Crescent
Note - this is designed to be worn as a scarf, fitting in neatly at the neck. The shape does not work well as a shawl. I know some people prefer shawls so I’m working on a separate shawl version - if you prefer a shawl, you might like to wait for that pattern - I hope to have it available in January 2013.
Knitted like a shawl (start with just a few stitches) to wear like a scarf.
Weave some contrast - use different textures or colours.
For colours you can use self-striping, highly variegated or semi-solid yarns.
For texture use different weights or types of yarn.
You can also use leftovers if you don’t mind sewing in ends.
