This crescent-shaped garter stitch shawl is worked from the top down with increase stitches on every row. It makes for an easy knitting project that is kept interesting with frequent colour changes to create contrasting stripes. After making one you will want to make another. And the best part? It makes a great gift. Just ask my mom!
