There is nothing quite like the silence of a moonlit winter’s night. The world seems to stop, while in the heavens, surrounded by a halo of iridescent light, the moon watches on. The Snow Moon is a time of stillness, a time of waiting, and in the days when people lived closer to the land, a time of worry - would the supplies laid away in autumn last until spring? In 2016, the Snow Moon occurs on February 22.

The Snow Moon shawl is crescent-shaped, and worked from the top down. The body uses a twisted stitch pattern, and the border is a globe-like lace. The sample shawl is a size large, and was worked in Crooked Kitchen Yarn’s Bluebella (colourway: Snow Moon).
