Marissa Knit Shawl from Motif Magic by Kristin Omdahl
This flirty wrap features an unusual construction method: the "edging" is actually knit first. Fifteen picot-edged half-circles are knit separately in garter stitch, then stitches are picked up to join them to begin the garter stitch base of the shawl. This is a spectacularly fun and festive use of color work and lace in a knit shawl. You can make this gorgeous shawl with a single ball of Be SO Fine Yarn, or use a Trio of Tidbits to make it in three colors for extra fun! This bottom up construction, half-circle shawl is fringed with beautiful crescent motifs and works up quiclky with easy lace.
