Fine Midnight Tryst Crescent-Shaped Knit Shawl Free Pattern

Fine Midnight Tryst Crescent-Shaped Knit Shawl Free Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

This is a wonderful project for learning edging as well as practicing increases and decreases. The shawl is worked side to side: increase for almost half of the shawl, work even for a few rows, then decrease for the remainder of the shawl. It is worked in one continuous piece, and the edging is knit simultaneously with the body.

The crescent shaped shawl is easy to wear and therefore makes wonderful gifts.

Annie’s:

Scheepjes Cotton 8: 100% cotton, #1 fingering weight yarn; 186 yds per 50gm ball, suggested needle size US 1 – 2. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine, Be So Lush and Be So Toasty yarns. This yarn retails for $2.49 per ball and comes in 9 colors.

Scheepjes Organic: 100% organic cotton, #1 fingering weight yarn; 186 yds per 50gm ball, suggested needle size US 1 – 2. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine, Be So Lush and Be SoToasty yarns. This yarn retails for $3.99 per ball and comes in 16 colors.

Hobbii Yarn:

Soft Bamboo Fine: 70% Bamboo, 23% Cotton, 7% Acrylic, #1 fingering weight yarn; 197 yds (180m) per 50 gm ball; suggested needle size US 2 – 4. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine, Be So Lush and Be So Toasty yarns. This yarn retails for $5.99 and comes in 19 colors.

Tencel Bamboo Fine: 40% Tencel, 60% Bamboo, #1 fingering weight yarn; 210 yds (230m) per 50 gm ball; suggested needle size US 1 – 3.

Jimmy Beans Wools:

Scheepjes Whirl Yarn: #1 fingering weight 60% cotton / 40% acrylic, self striping, ombre yarn; 1094 yds per 225gm ball that changes color only once per ball; it comes in 51 gradient color ways, suggested needle size is US 4 (3.25mm). It is labeled a #1 fingering weight yarn. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine or Be So Toasty yarn. One ball would be plenty to make any of my knit or crochet Be So Fine yarn shawl patterns. Each gradient cake retails for $29.99.

Knit Picks:

Comfy Fingering: #1 fingering weight 75% Pima Cotton / 25% acrylic; 250 yds per 50gm skein; Suggested needle size US 1 – 3. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine and Be So Toasty yarn. It comes in 19 colors and retails for $3.99 per skein.
