This laceweight shawl is worked entirely in the round but surprisingly, its shape is a beautiful crescent. Bird’s eye lace is so easy to knit when all stitches are worked on the right side.

Circles of Light is one of six shawl patterns from the Knit Light e-book.

The knitting starts in the middle of the shawl with Judy’s magic cast on. The shawl is worked in one piece, shaped with some increases and decreases, then bound of at the top and bottom edges.

The shawl is written for one size, with instructions to customize the size. Beads are optional. The pattern is both fully written out and charted.

For information about sizes, measurements and yarn requirements please check the second page of the pattern located among the photos on the left.

I asked test knitters what they would like to tell about the pattern and the finished shawl to other knitters and here are some of their answers:

craftzone Perfect shape and very interesting construction. It is one of my favorites in quite large collection ;)

candigirl429 It’s a very interesting and different approach to knit a shawl in the round. It was a pleasure to knit and a wonderfully written pattern. I love it!

Bufknitter: This beautiful shawl was created using an unconventional construction, which makes knitting this lace easy and results in a beautiful shawl.

Rutast: Unusual start and perfect shawl at the end.

Mazas Clear pattern, was pleasure to knit.

MandyzMoon: A delightful twist on a crescent shaped shawl. The crescent isn’t overly dramatic; the tips are more triangular highlighting the unique shaping. The shawl is easily wearable as it sits beautifully across the shoulders without having long, skinny trailing ends.

ftmhling This shawl is really good for knitters who want to learn something new:)
