This delicate crescent shawl in three sizes (Petite/Medium/Tall), kisses the shoulders with a soft swirl of garter stitch and tracery pattern; just the thing to complete a pretty summer outfit. Start at the hem with the beguiling lace border and with wrong side rows all in purl, the lace is much simpler to work than it appears. The garter stitch body is shaped with short rows to create an elegant sweeping curve, easy to wear and keep in place.
