February is the month of the Snow Moon. This shawl is a wispy little shawl that just hints at snow. It is worked in one piece from the bottom edge. The lace is followed by short rows to give the shawl its crescent shape. An I-cord bind off along the top edge makes a neat edge that prevents the shawl from rolling.
