Product description

“This half-circle shawl is knitted in one piece from the top down, composed of Moon and Stars. The double garter stitch Moon motif is achieved by using the double-point sliding technique alternating Strand A and Strand B, knit every row. The double garter stitch makes the fabric light, soft and puffy. The first Stars motif is a 5-into-5 lace stitch, and the second Stars motif is 5-into-3 lace stitch. The shawl is finished with double garter stitch edging to echo the Moon motif.” − Shui Kuen Kozinski
