Pattern notes:
Kyley is a top-down crescent-shape shawl, started with Garter Tab CO and worked with either single yo or double increases in every row in order to get its crescent shape.
The shawl has a garter stitch edging, 3 stitches wide, outside the increase stitches to prevent it from curling. This means that the first and the last three stitches of each row are always knit, which creates little bumps and makes the edge look nicer.
Finishing the shawl using the Picot BO creates a beautiful border across the bottom of the shawl. 

Size is adjustable by working more or fewer repeats, but please note, that changes will affect the finished size and required yardage.

The pattern contains schematics, charts and written instructions, photo tutorials. It has been professionally tech edited and test knitted.
