Reminiscent of the light and airy breeze of a moonlit summer evening, this crescent shaped shawl will gently wrap you in lacy luxury. The soft color accents add a watercolor effect to the top of the knitted-on 10” (25cm) lace border making this a dreamy summer shawl.

The unique construction requires you to cast on only 18 stitches, work from the top down, knit on the lace border, and there are only 44 stitches to bind off.

Directions are written and charted.
