Winter Frost is a crescent shawl with interesting texture and colour play. It’s knitted from the top down with two colours of DK weight yarn. And there’s no purling!
Winter Frost plays with Open Star Stitch in two colours. It creates a beautiful texture that’s open and airy as well as cosy. This delightful shawl is relaxing to knit and looks beautiful wrapped around your neck.

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.
