Crescent Scarf

This easy shawl works quickly and is the perfect project for a cake yarn. I used one mandala cake to make this but could easily be done in a four weight with something like a caron cake.

Repeat rows 5-14 until you reach the length you would like.

When it reaches the length you would like, fasten off and weave in ends. I recommend block this shawl into the crescent shape. Wet it and pin it down in a crescent shape.
