In January 2018 I was the Knit Doctor at the first-ever Loops retreat in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a special treat, Ross of Dye For Knitting created a colorway called “Loops Loves Ann.” I was so touched that I asked Ross to dye a semi-solid teal to pair with it, which is aptly named “Ann Loves Loops.”

This shallow crescent shawl begins with a 3-stitch tab. Stitches are picked up from the tab and worked in a two-color garter stripe pattern for the upper part of the shawl. The main body of the shawl is worked in two-color brioche ribs. The two colors are then reversed to finish the shawl with a brioche leaf edging.

The shallow crescent shape is achieved by increasing 6 stitches (3 stitches at each end of the needle) every 2 rows in the garter stripe pattern, and 6 stitches every 8 rows in the brioche rib pattern.
