This generous frosty black crescent shawl is perfect to warm your shoulders this winter. It is designed especially for sitting by the fireplace and savoring your knitting time. Beautiful lace fan shapes spread across the surface and are accented with a picot trimmed border. The Shawl is shaped without short rows and knitted from the top down beginning with a garter stitch tab. Charts and full written instructions are included for the lace pattern, as well as suggestions for beginning the lace at a different point. Use any yarn weight up to bulky, adjusting your yardage requirements accordingly.
