Half Moon Shawl

Lion Brand® Cupcake®


20 sts + 9 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Half Moon Shawl Reviewed by B G Cox on 2013-01-23 *****
This is a beautiful shawl. Have made several and given them away. We have a shawl ministry at our church and am always looking for patterns that work up quick and easy. This is it. The ladies love them. Thank you so much.
