This fluid crescent shawl in two sizes (Petite/Tall), features an unusual hem treatment inspired by distinct shapes found in nature—tree mushrooms, sea sponges, and woodland nests come to mind. Quirky lines within the motifs are accented with a contrasting color here, but a single color or variegated colorway will offer equal drama. The shawl begins at the hem with easy-to-work lace motifs; the stitch count reduces steadily to a garter stitch body shaped by short rows into a curving shape. Use a soft yarn blend containing some silk for a fabric that drapes luxuriously with liquid edges. To learn more about the original design process of Polypore, read the blog.
