Looking Up Crescent Shawlette


The lace stitch pattern on the border of this small crescent shawlette creates rows of arrows that are used here to suggest a positive direction in life – a “bright future.”
The points of those arrows could be accentuated with beads; placement for these optional beads is indicated on the graph. Knit flat from the bottom up, a circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. The lace border is knit straight, with no shaping, while the crescent is shaped in the stocking stitch section with short rows that are resolved on subsequent rows with a decrease, and so do not need to be wrapped before turning.

Wear the small crescent as a scarf under a coat or draped over one’s shoulders on a cool summer evening.
