Playful Plumage Crescent is a crescent shaped shawl knit in one piece from the center-top outward. It is shaped by all the increasing done on the edging. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern. It can easily be customized by changing the number of repeats of charts 2.

Detailed stitch counts are giving for each row of the pattern.

I have also designed the pattern as a triangle which can be found here.
