Luna Moth Shawl as seen in Vogue’s Spring 2009 Pink page.

In Darkness of Night - Unseen Luna Moth,
Secret Beauty.

The Luna Moth Shawl is a top-down, triangular shoulder shawl in 2 mirror image sections. The Luna Moth motif is a modified diagonal fern lace pattern from Barbara Walker’s A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, page 211. It is a 20 row repeat pattern - all even number rows (wrong side return rows) are purled. The basic structure of the shawl is very simple. On the same row, the double decrease stitch is always in the same direction on one side (right) and mirror image on the other side (left). Therefore, it is a good beginner/ intermediate shawl.

Experience Level:

72 inches wide at widest point by 43.5 inches long at longest point after blocking.

Lace patterns are both written out and charted.

Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.

Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience. 

Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
