This stunning crescent shawl begins with just three stitches using a garter tab cast on at the top. The pattern uses two strands of lace weight yarn held together, one of which has sequins for a subtle shimmer. This little white shawl if the knit world’s version of the little black dress.

There is a quirky video overview of this pattern available on YouTube here.

A stockinette background is balanced with some gathered stitches and rows of eyelets. Stitch techniques include: slipped stitches, yarn over, knit thee together. Yarn substitutions for a single skein of fingering or DK weight yarn will work. Adjust needle size to obtain desired gauge.

Take Me to the Pary has a beautiful, flawlessly crescent shape. It’s not overly intricate, nor is it boring. There’s just enough detail and patternwork to make it different without causing exhaustion or undue knitting stress.
