This side-to-side design offers a very unique construction that teaches you how to incorporate short rows to curve the piece at the same time that you are enlarging and then decreasing it to make a perfect crescent shape with a touch of lace edging worked right in. And the shape is fantastic because it stays put. The curve is integrated into the design.

Working side-to-side has many advantages--1. You can get the most of your yarn by making sure you have used up 1/2 skein before decreasing. Once you hit the halfway mark, the decreases make it fast and easy to end. 2. You never have too many stitches on the needle.

The Tranquility Version comes free when you purchase the yarn (the url to get the pattern is right on the label).
