Lunae’s most prominent design feature are the beautiful, but easy to work horizontal and vertical mosaic bands. But she has more; lots of amazing texture, a lovely, wearable shape, a fun construction, and, if you’re in to them, tassels!
And yes, it seems like a lot, but the well thought out details and the meticulously balanced proportions prevent it from being over-the top in any way. Although Lunae is a stunner and an eye catcher, she is also remarkably easy to wear and effortlessly elegant.
Wear yours with pride and a very wide smile!

C O N S T R U C T I O N
Lunae has a relatively shallow, elongated triangular shape. A prominent design feature are the vertical and horizontal mosaic bands that adorn the shawl. To achieve this look the
Upper Body of the shawl is worked from side to side. For the Lower Shawl Body, stitches are picked up at the lower edge of the Upper Shawl Body. From here on you will be working downwards, further shaping the shawl by increasing at the sides and the center of your
shawl.
