Fly me to the moon

The lace border is reminiscing of the moon and the wingspan of this crescent shawl evoke the look of big wings and so the name fits this project perfectly..

Knitted in a bit more than a bulky yarn makes for a super quick knit. This project starts off with a garter tab cast on, increases steadily and a pretty lace border rounds up this great feeling and looking shawl. It has a certain heft to it too, which feels like an instant hug when you put it on.
