Moonworts are ferns of the genus Botrychium. The name comes from the Shetland fern lace patterns in the shawl, plus it’s knitted from a moonlight-colored yarn (that’s a fancy description for “ordinary gray”). There’s also the added bonus that I get to use the word “wort” in polite company.

Try it in lace weight yarns or a fine-gauge chenille for different looks, scrunch it up like a scarf and tie it or drape it for gothic drama.
