The Moonlight Sonata Scarf is a top-down, triangular shape scarf in two identical sections.
The reversible motif of moonlight is from A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns - Charted Knitting Designs, by Barbara Walker, page 150, 151, 152. It is called Sunspots.
This is a version 2 triangular shawlette, I knitted chart 2 only 8 times. For larger size shawl, 12-15 times will be needed depend on the yarn.
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.
Use US 6 for body of the shawlette, US 7 for 6 rows of garter edging, and US 6 for picot bind off.
I used 3 balls, have only couple inches left. I recommended 4 balls for this shawlette.
