FD-146 Moon Moth

Back in 2014 I came up with a design for a lace crescent using some pretty green Aran weight yarn. I had a number of people like it, but practically no one wanted to knit it. They all said they would knit it in a heartbeat, if only it were designed with fingering weight yarn. Fast forward to this summer. I’d been floundering a bit, unsure what to work on next. My eye kept catching a pretty hank of bright green fingering weight yarn on the other side of my desk. Hm. I did a little math, wound the yarn into a cake for knitting, and cast on… And so Moon Moth was born.

Knitting begins with a long cast on, and the lace edge of the shawl. The top four rows of the lace begin the shaping, which is continued with garter stitch short rows before binding off.
