Knit this beautiful semi-circular shawl with three speckled colors of yarn like Uschitita’s shiny and soft Merino Singles. Twisted stitches grow from the edge with yarn over shaping to form a generous crescent shape. Garter stitch mesh yarn over rows are super easy to knit and produce a lovely lightweight fabric. The border features meandering twisted stitches and a fun smocked technique for extra flair.
