Celebrate a  season of brights after a gray winter with the Silk Moon Crescent Knitalong!

This easy crescent shawl is all Garter stitch, with increase row yarnovers to give it a distinct slice-of-the moon shape. It works up quickly using just a couple of skeins of Noro (the sample shown is Silk Garden, but Kureyon, Taiyo, or your favorite worsted-weight yarn work just as nicely). Kureyon is even on sale at WEBS right now, or, of course, you could go to your LYS and have it in your hands right away. Find the Silk Moon Crescent pattern in my Ravelry store.

The smaller size (shown here) is paired with instructions for a larger one for more coziness on those spring nights if you desire!

The KAL starts today, and will run for exactly one month, until May 25th. Everyone who finishes will receive a pattern of their choice from my Ravelry store. One lucky winner will take home enough Noro for a second shawlette, and a second winner will get a copy of my forthcoming e-book, Knitting Recipes: Hats and Cowls.

Visit the Knitcircus Ravelry group for KAL updates, progress and fun. Please come and  introduce yourself so we can cheer you on!

If you found this shawl through Susan B. Anderson‘s blog, welcome! She is a wonderful designer and person; I can’t believe how she keeps coming up with ever-more-adorable designs. She’s also hosting a Knitalong for Itty Bitty Toys; you can join anytime, so if you’re a multi-project knitter, you can do both of these KAL’s at once!

Looking forward to seeing the beautiful color combinations you create,
