The Moon Phases Shawl, designed by Adella Dutra, is a full crescent-shaped shawl worked in simple but effective stockinette stitch, beginning with just few stitches in the heart of the shawl in the lightest colour and growing outward, increasing in size and depth of shade to the long external edge and darkest colour.
Made with 5 rich shades of Arranmore Light, this generously proportioned shawl wraps around you like a warm embrace and provides hours of soothing, meditative knitting.
The Moon Phases Shawl is the fourth pattern from The Almanac Series II, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns.
The first days of autumn are celebrated in our Yarn of the Month for September, Arranmore Light. This tweedy, richly textured DK-weight yarn has the traditional look of tweed yarns of the past and nostalgic back-to-school feelings, but the luxurious blend of cashmere, Merino, and silk, this is not your average yarn.
