This ombre crescent moon shawl is a semi-circular shawl that uses the double crochet stitch and a number two fine yarn to achieve this beautiful, classy accessory. Crocheting with Thread-Like Yarn For years, I was a bit nervous to try using the fine yarn for crochet projects. However, there are just so many gorgeous yarns available now. I had purchased several cakes of yarn in different colors a few months ago. Rather than being a triangle or asymmetrical shawl as I have done in the past, it worked in a semi-circular design. The colors along with the flowy drape make this shawl look very classy. This is an easy crochet pattern to work with lovely results.
Crescent shawls are easier to tie than triangle shawls. Like triangle shawls, they can also be worn as scarves or shawls. This simple pattern is perfect for highlighting a special yarn to make an accessory you can wear year-round. This pattern was designed for the Make It For Me event with ELK Studio.

When sat there working the Boux rectangle shawl up which you can find here, i came up with the idea of doing an asymmetrical shawl using the same stitch pattern. Now i will be very honest, in the past when designing an asymmetrical shawl i always used the filet crochet method and i had never designed a shawl with an actual stitch pattern so it took a little more working out than normal (but not as much as the one that i am currently working on, new pattern coming soon YAY!) but the Boux asymmetrical shawl turned out just how i wanted it and it is actually one of my most personal favorites to date, i think because there was a sense of achievement in something i had never done before.
Trying out my hand at designing a crochet Asymmetrical shawl. I've made several Butterfly Shawls designs and wanted to try something new. I really like the way you can wear these Asymmetrical shawls, it's reminds me something between a cowl and a regular shawl the way I've seen it worn. I found the perfect stitch that looks great from both sides. Me and my husband actually like the way the back of the stitch looks better than the front side of the stitch. Which for us makes this a double sided Asymmetrical shawl! I'll let you decide. I really hope you enjoy this Asymmetrical shawl as much as I did making it.

"The Serendipity Asymmetrical Shawl features a beautiful skein of yarn that is paired with an easy crochet stitch. If you have one of those cakes of yarn that has just over 1,000 yards, this will be a perfect crochet pattern to use. This asymmetrical shawl is worked on the bias where one side continues to grow while the other side stays straight. If you are an advanced beginner, I think that you would have no problem mastering this lovely crochet pattern. St. Paddy’s Day will soon be upon us and I wish everyone good luck in this New Year. This will be a perfect accessory showing off your green side. When thinking about naming this Shawl, Serendipity landed at the top of the list. It is the unplanned good luck some people have. This just seemed to fit together."
