Do you remember your favorite summer? The warm breezes, sweet smells in the air and that feeling of freedom. What made it special? What made it the summer of…?

This crescent shaped shawl is done in a fingering weight yarn and worked from the top down with the option of adding accent beads. It is a relaxing knit, but with enough variety to keep you thoroughly entertained.

Pattern is charted and written out.

Originally released as a Mystery KAL, it is now condensed into a single pattern.
