This featherweight crescent shawl in three sizes (petite/medium/tall) captures the beautiful shimmer of running water as it pools and cascades over a rocky path.
Light enough to wear with a sweater or blouse, it can also be wrapped around double to provide a surprisingly warm layer when stepping outside into the wind—with a reversible openwork pattern, styling is a cinch.The back and forth movement of the motif creates a wavy effect that plays well with streaky natural shades or hand-dyed colorways. Simple stitchwork makes this an easy to learn, highly portable project, great for lace newbies or experienced knitters to enjoy as an option for travel or gift knitting.
