Still Moon is a top-down crescent shaped shawl featuring lace and two different slipped stitch textures. It begins with a long provisional garter tab cast on and is shaped with two increases every right side row and four increases every wrong side row.
All of the stitch patterns used divide evenly into the number of increases every two rows. This means you can switch between the different textures (including lace) on any right side row, making it very easy to customize.
Both written and charted instructions are included, and there are two low vision accessible versions (see file descriptions at bottom of page).Sizes
