The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up using double-pointed needles – alternatively, you could use a 40cm circular needle and the magic loop technique for the crown.

The cowl is worked in the round using a 60cm circular needle. This cowl starts with an i-cord cast on and ends with an i-cord cast off. Alternatively, you can cast on 115 sts with the long tail method and finish with an ordinary chain cast off, then work an applied i-cord around the edges.

This shawl is worked flat from the top down starting with a garter tab. Although it is worked flat and so you could use straight needles, we strongly recommend using a circular needle because the large number of stitches will not fit comfortably on standard straight needles. The lace and cable patterns can be worked either from the charts or the written instructions, whichever you prefer.

“This crescent shawl was inspired by old stone castles, which fascinate me. I love visiting them and taking photographs. When I started designing this shawl, I was looking at some of the pictures, and I wanted to create an edging resembling the archways I saw.” - Ágnes Kutas-Keresztes.
