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.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape
