The Moody Kerchief is an excellent stash buster. This worsted weight, semi-circular shawlette is worked from the center of the top edge downward and outward. Simple garter and stockinette sections are broken up with a several rows of equally simple lace. A contrasting border allows the knitter to play with color.
I used The Fiber Company's Organik & Savannah yarns for my shawl. Both are delicious yarns, just as we'd excpect from the Fiber Company. Thank you to Courtney & Kate of Kelbourne Woolens for sending them to me.
