The Ischnura Shawl is a warm and cozy crescent shawl knit in bulky weight wool. Named after a genus of damselflies, this shawl is worked flat from the bottom up on a circular needle, beginning with the lace section. Short rows are used to shape the upper (garter stitch) section.
The pattern provides full instructions for working the short rows. The lace stitch is provided in both a chart and in written, line-by-line form.
