A one skein shawl is such a pretty thing to make. They are always worthy of our finest treasured yarns, they yield almost instant gratification and they are, truly, the most fun accessories to spice up your daily wardrobe.
This simple crescent shaped shawl can be made with just 1 skein of fingering (sock weight) yarn. It alternates bands of slipped sts, garter stitch and short rows.
The crescent is asymmetrical (it’s longer towards one side) and its characteristic shape is achieved by working increases over the edges.

Approx. 80” 200 cm from side to side and 15” 32.5 cm from top to bottom at deepest point (after blocking).

1 skein of Tough Sock by Walk Collection (75% merino / 25% nylon; 465 yards 425m/100g) or approx. 440 yards 400m of fingering weight yarn. Shown in colorway Boho.
Needles: US 7 4.5 mm needles.
Other notions: Tapestry needle, a split ring st marker or similar, blocking pins or wires. Crochet hook if you wish to add a fringe.

14 sts and 30 rows to 4” 10cm in garter st on US 7 4.5 mm needles after blocking.

That lone skein was waiting… patiently hoping for you to notice her again. For you to remember how beautiful you once thought she was, how you dreamed of knitting her into something magical.
Here’s a pattern for you two to find each other again so she can get her wings and fly.
