This pattern is a mod of my Movie Night Shawl. I tweaked it so that it would be narrower, more scarf-like, and more dramatically asymmetrical. I also wanted to give it more of a saw-tooth bottom border.

I was very pleased with how it turned out and what a generous size I could get with a single skein, so I decided to share it with all of you. I hope you like it as much as I do!

With a pattern that is easy to remember and quick to work up, you’ll be enjoying this design before you know it!

There is a video tutorial on YouTube by FiberSpider for an absolutely gorgeous modification of this pattern to make it more symmetrical. You can follow the tutorial until the decreases begin for my pattern, or you can continue on with his decreases to make it look more like his mod.

UPDATE: I have recently worked a variation of Night Moves that makes a top edge with a far more pronounced curve, to help it rest better on the shoulders. Very minor mods. It’s essentially this exact pattern except…

  1. The top edge has Inc Shells for every row rather than every other row, and
  2. For the sawtooth edge, you don’t work into the last Shell every 2nd row rather than every 4th row.

For some reason, my brain is totally short circuiting when I think about writing this up as a pattern, but I still wanted to share it. I hope you like it. (Last pattern pic shows this mod.)

Items made from my patterns are intended for personal use, sale, or world domination--as long as I get a parking space wherever I want once the world is yours.
