Please use the discussion thread and the photo spoiler threads for this KAL separately because there are some people who want to be surprised by what their shawl will look like.

For those of you who would like to know in advance before getting started or ordering your yarn, we have set up a secret viewing page on our website where you can take a look at this KAL and the Valentine Sock KAL we are simultaneously hosting.

There is also a page set up with suggested color combinations --> here.

This shawl is a generously sized crescent shawl, worked from the bottom up. The lower edge is a lace edging worked in a darker contrasting color solid-ish colorway, there is a small band of accent color, then a lovely main color for the crescent-shaping body of the shawl.

The shawl involves some lace, but it is an easy to work and memorize pattern stitch. The short rows used for the crescent shaping are super easy and do not require any advanced knowledge or experience.

I do recommend having lots of stitch markers on hand for this project, because you can ensure a lack of mistakes in the lower border if you use stitch markers to block off the lace stitch pattern repeats.

While we appreciate you purchasing our yarn for this KAL, it is not required. More than anything we want to send some love out into the world and help sooth any lonely hearts we can touch with this circle of friendship.
