Wrap yourself in this beautiful shawl and head out to gaze at the night skies. Perfect for cool evenings in any season and made all the more scrumptious with a cup of hot cocoa in front of the re, indoors or out. Made from cozy worsted weight yarn, this shawl can be knit up quickly: in less time than it takes the moon to go from waxing to first quarter! Start at the centre of this shawl and increase quickly to achieve a generous wingspan. The patterning in classic garter stitch is jazzed up with slipped stitch moon beams leading into a starry field of lace diamond motifs. Whether you are a new or seasoned knitter, this is sure to be a classic piece in your wardrobe!
