This is a small, light cresecent-shaped shawl made from one skein of sock-weight yarn. Sections of garter stitch are followed by sections of simple diagonal lace, creating a defined, yet beautiful fabric.

It’s the perfect pattern for:

  • Those lone, beautiful hand-dyed sock skeins that you have to buy, but you’re not sure what you’re going to use them for!
  • Saturated OR speckled yarn.
  • Beginner knitters who are looking to try lace for the first time.
  • Experienced knitters who are wanting a simple knit that doesn’t require much focus or pattern-reading.
  • Gift knitting.

The pattern includes support features such as clear, tabulated instructions and stitch counts; written and charted instructions for the lace section; and video tutorials for some of the less common design elements.
