A triangle shawl knit sideways, consisting of stranded colorwork and edged with neat i-cord. The lunar phases are featured down the spine of the shawl, creating a unique look whether you wear it around your shoulders or neck. The shawl begins with easy, mindless garter stitch
that you are excited to get through quickly in order to reach the fun colorwork. Once you’re done with that widest part of the shawl, you’ll be able to finish the shawl just as quickly as you began since the stitches will begin decreasing in order to shape the triangle.
