At the riverโ€™s edge the water ripples, undulates, gently laps over shallow pebbles, twigs, and small fish, making lazy, swirling diamond patterns that are kissed by a glistening summer sun.

This crescent shawl starts with the lace edge, either long or short, narrow or wide. There are ten sizes to choose from, so the knitter can get just what is wanted from this simple diamond pattern. Choose size to knit based on lace length and inner edge dimensions. The last diamond rows begin the shaping that ends with garter stitch short rows, making what would be a wide rectangle into a pleasing crescent.
