Christmas Crescent

November is almost over, and Christmas is approaching quickly. It’s time to start making presents!

The first gift I’ve finished so far is my first shawl project. I used one skein of Simply Soft Light in Hawaiian Sky to make Julie Aakjær’s beautiful Spring Crescent pattern, which is available as a free download on Ravelry, here.

I would definitely use both the yarn and the pattern again. The Simply Soft Light has great yardage for the price, is machine washable, and is available in several jewel-tone colors. Even after heavy frogging, the yarn hardly pills at all, although it sticks to itself in some places. The light twist of the yarn lends texture to the finished fabric and adds interest to the project. The Spring Crescent pattern has clear instructions and simple charts. It’s easy to modify to accommodate for different amounts and weights of yarn. This simple one-skein shawl will make a great gift.

  4. lovely pattern and love the color and yes, that yarn is so soft and yet has some body. Some yarns don’t handle frogging well as my current cloak test pattern can attest lol. All for our art right?
