First Crescent Shaped Shawl

 Guys, I'm on a roll...oh yes I am!

This is the second week that I can post a FO Friday project, how cool is that, (my son says I'm not allowed to say " cool" anymore, it shows my age - I'm supposed to say "sick" ??? I prefer "cool", please don't tell him.......).

Anyway, I've been on holiday for just over two weeks and in that time I managed to cast on, knit, bind off and block my first crescent shaped shawl, as follows:

It's knit with sock wool and I absolutely love it. Yes guys, as we a had a non existent summer, I am now gearing up for Winter. (Note: I'm back to work on Monday, in every sense of the word, so can safely say that I will be slowing back down on my knitting - aahhhh it was nice while it lasted!) For more FO's, click here:


  1. Your shawl is beautiful, well done!

  2. Ooooh that's a pretty yarn: did I miss where you said what it is ? :-)

  3. It looks super, love the colour. And I think cool is much better than sick too

  4. Hi Vivianne, if you check out my Ravelry page, you'll find the relevant information.

  5. Thank you for the comment on my blog, I must say I like your shawl, its very pretty even for a sock wool knit :) I think it may be one thing I will try and make at some point :)

  6. It looks beautiful, I really like crescent shaped shawls, I find they sit nicely on the shoulders (much more so than triangular ones!)

  7. It's cool...yeah I know I too am showing my age, but sick sounds nasty, not good. I love your shawl, the pattern and the colors. Awesome. Is that the name of the pattern? Crescent? Would love to check it out if you could leave a link.

  8. Hi Sandy, you may need to copy and paste the following into your search engine for the pattern:

    Hopefully you are on Ravelry. That's where I found the pattern. It's called the "simple but not boring shawl"

  9. You didn't give us an accessible link. It is closed, only to ravel people. You should give us the public link so we could all see the shawl.

    1. Oops sorry I didn't know you could do that, here is the public link:

      Hope this works...
