A two color crescent shawl with simple garter and stockinette eyelet sections knit in a variegated yarn combined with slipped stitch reverse stockinette solid color sections. Knit using two colors of DK weight yarn, this project will feel as if it has knit itself – it goes so fast!
Keri from Youghiogheny Yarns and I worked together on this project. She dyed a gorgeous special colorway and I was inspired to design a shawl based on the many waterfalls located in Ohiopyle, a state park located in SW Pennsylvania where the Youghiogheny River flows.
