A Shetland lace-edged garter crescent shawl, created with one skein of single ply fingering yarn.

Living in Sydney, yet in love with all things Shetland, this shawl is my tribute to the beautiful archipelago that sits at the most northerly part of Scotland.

Construction Notes
The shawl is knitted top down, beginning with a garter tab cast on.
Rapid increases create a wide shallow curve for the main garter body.
A Shetland lace edging is knitted on the reverse side of the piece.
A pretty picot bind off/cast off completes the shawl.
There are no purl stitches at all in this shawl.
The pattern is fully written out but a chart for the lace edging is also included.
