The #7 Crescent Shawl by Lisa Barnes has the perfect casual shallow shape and size for warm weather! Using 2 skeins of Mirai from Noro a cotton blend using equal parts of silk and viscose, lends a sumptuous drape to this crescent shawl. Marai is a Japanese girls name meaning ‘The Future’ which Noro has beautifully captured in the vivid colors of this soft yarn.
Worked from the bottom up, the project is shaped with short rows after the scallped heart-lace border is complete. Purl ridges add subtle texture where the border and stockinette-stitch body meet. Click here to take a look at the pattern.

As engaging to style as it is to crochet, the Spiral Shawl by Donna Childs is worked in wedges formed by single, half-double and double crochet stitches. The sawtooth edge is shaped with short rows that are offset at the beginning of the row by chain-stitch extensions; the technique creates the narrow crescent shape. A narrow single-crochet band reinforces the top edge. Crocheted with 3 skeins of Silk Garden Lite this is a great accent piece for spring.
The colors of Noro adds drama with bright flashes of turquoise, pink and yellow against dark blue. The pattern can either be found in Noro Knitting Magazine Issue 9 or on Ravelry, just click here!

I fell in love with Milton by Jen Lucas the first time I saw a photograph! This shawl combines many different stitch combinations including cables, lace, and garter stitch.
It knits up beautifully in gradient yarn and the Done Roving Gradient Kit is perfect for this shawl shape. Milton is worked from one corner out forming an asymmetrical triangle.
Once the body of the shawl is complete a few stitches are cast on to form the lace border. I love the delicate vintage look of the shawl when it is complete. Click here to take a look at the pattern. L & B just received 7 colors of the Done Roving Gradient Kits so you are sure to find your favorite!
Each gradient skein is separate making it easy to choose your color order. Thank you to Carolyn for letting us photograph her lovely Milton!
