Knit Crescent shaped shawl

The crescent shape is now my new favorite shape for shawls and scarves. I had one 260 yard skein of Feederbrook Farm Entropy DK that I purchased at the NJ Sheep and Wool Festival. I loved the colors of this yarn and decided to knit the Terribly Simple Shawl.

I cast on using a U.S. size 6 circular needle as The stitch count increase in each row. From there, it was just a joyful garter stitch with rows that grew quickly.

I used all 260 yards and the scarf/shawl was 12 inches deep at the center so I went through my stash for a complimenting color. I had a skein of North Lights Fiber Water street in Chickory, an ideal blue to compliment the colors of the Feederbrook Farm yarn.

I continued to knit for about an inch and a half an since the width was now more than 50 inches, I knew it would fit comfortable around my neck so I decided to finish it with an i-cord bind off. The bind off took a lot of time but it was definitely worth it.

And it fits beautifully and is very comfortable to wear.

I’ll be using this pattern again and I have lots of ideas for color combinations from my stash yarns and stitch patterns from my Stitch Pattern Saturday series.

If you haven’t knit anything in this shape, I highly recommend it. you won’t be disappointed.
