A striking crescent shawl knitted in sport weight yarn, Zelda looks great worn draped around your shoulders with her long slender ends curling to the front, or snuggled up twice around your neck.

The relaxing garter body is created with simple increases and the textured border is knitted entirely with slipped stitches. Every row uses just one colour at a time!

Once you’ve done a few rows and seen how it goes, you’ll be knitting and chatting with the best of them.

The pattern is ideal for an adventurous beginner and includes both written & charted instructions and links to helpful tutorials.
