Oxbow is a simple crescent shawl that can be kit in one evening and with 1 skein of Malabrigo Rasta. This is knit from the bottom up, with short row shaping.
This is designed to be able to wear several ways. A great starter project for someone new to shawls or lace. This is a fun and fast knit, and is perfect for fall and winter.
The lace is written and charted.
We all have a special larger button tucked away that you cannot want to put on something worthy of it, so you have the option of adding a single button for front closer.
