Moorlands Romance Shawl

This shawl is a crescent shaped shawl in shades of heather and moss to create a very natural, earthy but still feminine canvas of a shawl. It builds first with an easy striped garter panel to get you going on the shape, forming the far off distance in this picture that will start to form, then into the texture of the double moss stitch to represent the colors and textures of the moorland landscape and into the so-close-you-can-almost pick the heather lace panel and the traditional woven look stitch work of a basket patterned section to gather it all in.
Each color has its moment to blend with another shade but also chance to stand alone to give a balanced color rich result. The shape is formed initially by a swift increase from 5 stitches by way of KFB increases and then at each end of the shawl.I have worked this construction for this shawl as an alternative to working a garter tab start. With its simple construction and repeated stitch patterns it makes for an enjoyable play with color and textures

There is a point in the last Moss stitch section of the shawl where you can choose to extend the size if you wish, with a further skein of Yarn A used in that section
