Summer Moonrise Shawl Pattern
I designed this lightweight crescent shawl to be knit using two skeins of fingering weight yarn. This pattern is full of different lace elements and the yarn overs help to create a nice and flowing texture.
You will be using two different yarns for this pattern (colors A & B) and I have indicated in each section when to cut one color and add the other. After binding off the shawl, you may want to add small tassels along the bottom edge. This step is optional, but I have included a link to a video tutorial on how to make them.
