Have you ever picked up a skein of yarn and just fallen in love with it? That’s what happened when I found MooRoo’s Moonbeam yarn. It’d been a long day of wandering around the stalls at a fibre arts fair, and I was on the hunt for a skein of something with silk and a bit of shine to it. Finally, right as I was about to give up, there it was. Silk and merino, super squishy with just the right amount of shine, and I was hooked.

It was coming up to summer as I designed this, so making a shawl seemed like a strange thing to do. But I wanted to see what I could make with one skein of the yarn and given how shimmery it is, it seemed like the perfect yarn to make a little kerchief shawl out of for those days where you just want a bit of neck bling. After that, though, I couldn’t resist making it a big sister for the Fall. That way you can make one of each size and use them all year round.

The shawl is a knit using a lace chart and larger needles so it works up quickly. I had a lot of fun making mine and I hope you do too!
