The Anonymous Shawl is a crescent shaped shawl with just the right amount of texture. The alternating sections of three different, easy to memorize stitch patterns and a picot bind-off make it an interesting yet beginner-friendly knit.

This design shows off yarns with a little bit of shine like Juniper Moon Farm’s Findley DK beautifully. Gauge is not crucial with this pattern, but please note that working with a different gauge might affect the yardage needed and the size of the finished shawl.
