The Lady Moth Shawl pattern was designed for the first birthday of my blog.
The name is came from the the fly-like motif of the lace edging.
The shawl is knitted sideways as one piece along with the unique lace border.
This is a long and narrow scarf – shawl – shoulderette, its strange elongated half-circle shape is formed with short rows. You can use it as a wrap - to warm your shoulder or like an ordinary scarf around your neck. Ideal accessory for the cold evenings.
