Half Moon Bay

Half Moon Bay

5.00

Oversized and deeply dramatic, the Half Moon Bay shawl makes an entrance, and aims right for that sweet spot of engaging-but-approachable knitting and spectacular visual impact. The lace and cable pattern is bold and graphic but easy to memorize, as it’s an eight-row repeat with cables no larger than 2x2. The shawl is equally appropriate with jeans and a white tee shirt on the docks as it is with a little black dress on date night, while the DK-weight yarn renders the texture in a scale that reads from well across the room. Designed in YOTH’s ultra-luxurious Merino-Cashmere-Nylon Big Sister, this shawl is next-to-skin soft, while the eyelet lace keeps it from being too warm for summertime.
