One skein of fingering weight yarn is all you need for this effortless and simple shawl. Drops of Joy is a beautiful one skein crescent shawl that is worked top-down from the neck.

First, you knit the body of the shawl in an airy eyelet pattern decorated with fishnet stripes. Finally, the fishnet lace border gives this delicate beauty a light finishing touch.

Dive into your stash for that treasured single skein or treat yourself to something new. You’ll enjoy every stitch!

One skein of Primrose Yarn Co. Adelaide (100% single-ply Merino; 398 m / 435 yds per 115 g.) Shown in colour Better With Age.

Or approximately 398 m / 435 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

Shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
