It's time to release my brand new pattern, always an exciting day!
I have been a little obsessed with this lovely slender, gently curving, crescent shape just lately. It strikes me as a most perfect shawl shape as it wraps around beautifully and yet doesn't hang too low, as some of the larger triangle style ones can do.
It makes it a bit more versatile and easy to wear I think and I find myself wanting something that's a little more suitable for a variety of weathers.
There was a lot of trial and error on this one. I wanted to avoid that straight inside edge that can be a little awkward to style and instead aim for a nice natural, sweeping shape to make it as easy as possible to drape around the neck. So there was a lot of ripping back and tinkering to get just the nice curvy shape that I wanted but I am so, so pleased with how it turned out in the end.
The other 'big idea' I was going for with this shawl was to have something that could be made out of either 4ply (fingering) or DK weight yarn, but would create the same size finished object.
So this pattern is actually written for two sizes. One which can be used for 4ply yarn and the other which is intended for DK weight yarn. I'm pretty chuffed about that too!
So you'll only need one 100g skein of 4ply (fingering) weight yarn for this one, (440 yards or so) and probably two skeins of DK weight (about 490 yards).
It makes for a fairly quick little project to whip up, which is always nice but I also think it's a lovely pattern for a gift make too. It's one of those few patterns which I could make again and again.
(Just as well as I've been doing exactly that!)
Well, let's get onto the pattern details for you.
