The Moon and the Sky Shawl is a generously sized lace shawl and incredibly versatile to wear. It is delicate and light enough for warm summer evenings and come the colder seasons it can be wrapped around the neck as an elegant and warm winter scarf.
Alternating relaxing sections of smooth stockinette with a simple, repetitive lace pattern, this shawl makes for an engaging knit. A sprinkling of beads in the second lace stripe and the border sections of lace add a touch of glamour and sparkle.
A smooth solid or semi-tonal lace yarn works best for this project. You can either match the beads to your yarn or use contrast beads for striking pops of colour.
A video tutorial for how to add beads with a crochet hook is linked in the pattern.
