The Riverrun crescent shawl is a perfect pattern for hand-dyed yarns. The seed stitch of the body will highlight the subtle variegation and emphasize the beauty of the color. The body knits up quickly and before you get too bored with simple seed stitch, you will already have reached the edge, which features mosaic technique and a delicate lace edge.
Riverrun is a symmetrical crescent shawl, knitted top down. The body consists of six segments of seed stitch separated by garter contrast stripes. The edge starts with a wide intricate mosaic stripe and is finished off with a delicate lace edge worked sideways.
