A light and airy crescent shawl, this shawl will easily become your go to accessory for cool evenings. Knit from the top down alternating two chevron patterns and using two skeins of fingering yarn, Joyful Crescent is a great way to use up those slow changing gradients in your stash. The sample is knit with Knitwits Freia Fingering Shawl ball and Blue Moon Fibers Super Sparkle.

The large chevron sections (Chevron A) show off the slow gradient changes of the Freia beautifully and the Super Sparkle adds a bit of bling to the smaller chevron sections (Chevron B) and perpendicular edge finish. Choose your favorite gradient and sparkle or dig into your stash.
