Inspired by all things Romantic (that’s with a capital “R”), this lacy crescent shawl is the perfect accessory for curling up by candlelight for some dark spooky reading. Or perhaps you’d rather be in the story, roaming some misty and quite possibly haunted moors, either way this shawl is a dramatic piece to drape yourself in. Pick two colors to bring together to add to the dramatic gothic architecture inspired lace. This shawl is an ode to this era of exploring emotions that lead us to supernatural works of fiction that continue to light our imaginations aflame.

Pattern Difficulty
This is a lace pattern, the lace is made from k2tog, ssk, cdd, and yarn overs. There are no more advanced stitch manipulations than those listed here. It would be a good first lace pattern for newbie lace knitters because it is fairly simple lace. Maybe use a lifeline in-between clues if you’re nervous!

Pattern includes both fully charted and fully written instructions. Pattern was also originally released as a Mystery Knit Along so you receive all of the original Clue releases in addition to the full pattern!
