Short Description: Lunaris by The Yarniad. Lunaris (Latin for lunar, after its moon-like shape) is a simple crescent-shaped shawl with just a bit of ruffle. Worked from the top down in Stockinette stitch with a gradient stripe pattern, it can be done monochromatically – in two yarns with similar weights but different textures – or with more distinct stripes. Wrapping it around the neck creates a lovely scarf with cascading ruffles; draping it as a wrap really shows off the stripe pattern – either way this piece is a lovely light piece to wear as the seasons change. A photo tutorial for the Garter Tab Cast On used to begin the shawl has been provided.
