Midge is a crescent shawl worked from the top down in two colors. It begins with a simple stockinette stitch, flows into a textured lace section, and ends with a lace border. It can be worked in two colors, as shown in both of the samples, but I feel it would also be quite beautiful knit up in a single colorway.

Needle: US6 (4.00mm) or size to obtain blocked gauge, 40” circular needle.

Gauge: 19 stitches / 27 rows = 4” in stockinette, blocked.

Finished Size: Depth at center 18”, inside curve 53”, outside curve 83”, blocked
