Small shawls are a brilliant way to show off the sock yarn that's too pretty to wear on your feet! This crescent shaped shawl has a great shape that's easy to wear, as it stays on without a shawl pin; it can work as a scarf and be draped in many different ways. It's designed to use one skein (about 400 metres/440 yds) of a solid, semi-solid yarn or gently variegated yarn. Beginning with a center neck cast on, the shawl features 2 columns of yarn-over increases, accented by baby cables, plus increases at the edges. The first section is in garter stitch, so the knitter will see fast progress. The pretty lace edging (2 sets of interlocking triangles outlined in yarn-overs) forms a scalloped edge which is blocked into points to complete the graceful feminine look.

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
