Break of Dawn is a one skein wonder for your favourite fingering weight yarn. This quick-to-knit crescent shawl has a garter stitch body and diamond lace border. It’s worked from the top down and there’s no purling!

The garter stitch body is decorated with evenly placed eyelet stripes. The beautiful diamond lace is worked on right side rows only and the pattern is easy to memorize after a few repeats.

Break of Dawn looks great in solid, semi-solid and slightly speckled yarns. Which one will you choose?



One skein of La Bien Aimée Merino Singles (100% merino wool; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g). Shown in colourway Dawn.

Or approximately 352 m / 385 yds of similar fingering weight wool yarn.


Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.


20 stitches and 40 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch, before blocking
