Fine Midnight Tryst Crescent-Shaped Knit Shawl Free Pattern

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. 

What you will need:
1 ball Be So Fine Yarn, shown in color Million Dollar Red
US3 (3.25mm) knitting needles
stitch market (optional)

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!

I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.

Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.

I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.

But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.

Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.

Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports

Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.

xoxo, Kristin
