This crescent shawl was designed by Ann Budd, it is her 2020 project for The Longest Day, a fundraiser sponsored by Alzheimer’s Research (www.alz.org). The idea is that participants engage in a favorite activity from sunrise to sunset on June 20, the longest day of the year. On this day I’ll knit another version of the shawl shown here and post my hourly progress on Instagram (annbuddknits).
This crescent-shaped shawl begins with a narrow garter-stitch tab from which stitches are picked up around three edges. To achieve the crescent shape, two stitches are increased inside each edge stitch every right-side row and one stitch is increased inside each edge stitch every wrong-side row. A modified picot bind-off produces tiny points along the lower edge.
