“Moho” is the Spanish word for “rust”, and after binding off this shawl, I couldn’t help but think of an old ship on its last layers of metal due to the rusting that occurred after years at sea. Construction and techniques may be familiar, but the result is unique. Worked sideways in a growing chevron style, half the shawl is regular garter stitch, and the other half is created with mesh lace eyelets. Each section moves, creating a lovely edge that grows, then shrinks back down near the end. Any yarn, any yardage, and any gauge will work, and you can treat yourself or another to a lovely accessory!
