January is the month of the Wolf Moon. This shawl is perfect for wrapping up to protect you from January’s cruel, cold weather.

It is worked in one piece from the bottom edge. The lace is followed by short rows in garter stitch to give the shawl its crescent shape.

Please note that while Quince & Co. Osprey is listed as an aran weight, most test knitters used a chunky/bulky weight yarn.
