This crescent shaped shawl has a great shape that’s easy to wear, as it stays on without a shawl pin; it can work as a scarf and be draped in many different ways.
It’s designed to use one skein (about 400 yds) of a solid, or semi-solid yarn.
A larger size is provided as well, using 450 yds.
Beginning with a center neck cast on, the shawl features 2 columns of yarn-over increases, plus increases at the edges. The first section is in garter stitch, so the knitter will see fast progress.
The pretty lace edging ends in a narrow ruffled edge to complete the graceful feminine look.


Approx 88 (110) in/220 (275) cm around outside edge and 15 (18) in/38 (45) cm from midpoint (neck) to bottom edge, after blocking.

Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Glitter Sock, 80% superwash merino wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon; 100g/400 yd, Captivate colorway.
