Crescent Shawl With Lace And Beads // Design By Anniken Allis
This gorgeous crescent shawl begins with a wide lace border. The crescent shape is achieved by working a combination of short rows and decreases. Beads add a bit of luxurious bling but are completely optional. The stitch pattern is mirrored either side of the centre line.
