About this Pattern
A Harvest Moon is one that occurs closest to the beginning of Autumn and it’s when the moon is at its fullest and brightest. Traditionally this was the time that the farmers harvested their Summer crops, working late into the night to make the most of the abundant moonlight.
The Harvest Moon shawl is a one skein asymmetric shawl which sees a single ‘yo, ssk’ stitch take hold to grow rows of pretty lace. The lace columns cut their way through fields of smooth stockinette, creating rays that point to the lace border. The sections work together to allow the final lace to flourish and bloom as it reaches the edges of the shawl.
Once you have worked the last row, it’s time to reap the benefits of all your hard work as you harvest your stitches and cast them off.
The pattern has been test knitted and tech edited propr to publishing and a handy stitch count checklist is also provided.
