Crescentina Shawl - a sideways knit shawl

Crescentina Shawl is now available. This is another rift on the sideways garter stitch shawls I started knitting last year. They are very addictive! LOL! This is a crescent shaped shawl knit from tip to tip in garter stitch with the lace edging knit in as you go. The back section is shaped with short rows. Use worsted weight yarn (400-500 yards) and your choice of knitting needles (size 8, 9, or 10). The bigger the needle size the more drape and the longer the back section will be. Block or don’t block your shawl as you choose. This blue shawl was knit with 2 skeins of Cascade Handpaints on size 9 needles and blocked (60” wide x 20” deep at center back). You don't have to block your shawl if you don't want to. It will make a smaller shawl.

The 3 page pattern includes written instructions plus a photo tutorial on preventing holes from the short rows.
