Product description

This pretty shawl is worked seamlessly in two parts and once finished, resembles a Faroese Crescent. The Shawl Body is worked first, utilizing a center-out construction. Upon completion of the first section, a Knitted-On Border is worked and consumes live stitches from Shawl Body, negating the need for a traditional bind-off. The shape may look peculiar as you knit, but as with most lace knitting, it blooms into a gorgeous finished shape after blocking.
