This Crescent Shawl with triangular accents is a lovely knit shawl pattern for an autumn day, and you will love to cuddle under its warmth. Free shawl knitting patterns are great for those cozy evenings by the fire, while the wind howls outside your window. Lace-like edges and simple stitches make this pattern hard to resist, since it works up fast and beautifully. This pattern will keep you warm while you make it, and it will be a go-to shawl long after it leaves your needles.

Earlier comments are from 2012. I'm so glad this is being offered again, in 2013. I am awe-struck with this design. This is going to be a "must make another" item!! My first one went to the woman who runs the food pantry at my church. She gives so much, and asks for nothing in return; and yet, she keeps her needs silent.

pretty :)

I am a keen knitter and I love this shawl. I shall be knitting for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. Thank you MariaZarb.

Hi, I am thinking about making this but am not sure if I'm getting in over my head. It is listed as intermediate but can someone give me an idea on a scale of 1 (easy) - 10 (hard) how hard this was to make? I have not knitted very much but years ago did a long sleeve sweater with some type of cable design that turned out well.Thanks for your input.

I, too, could not download the directions to this patter.

From the designer: Please note the name of this shawl is actually the "Demalangeni Shawl" which you can find simply by doing an internet search if you should have any issues.

If you click on the above green "click her for knitting pattern. The Crescent Shawl pattern will come up as the first free pattern called Demalangeni. Then right below the picture you click on "Download" and then once you download you can bring up the PDF FORM to print the pattern free. I had no problem. Hope this helps you. Good Luck this is a beautiful pattern!

Could someone please tell me how to download the free Crescent Shawl pattern? I have tried everything I know with zero results. Thanks in advance for anything you might be able to help me with.

Are you using Windows/IE? Just click on the green "click here for knitting pattern." When the pattern opens in another tab, click on Download Now. If you are using Windows, you will be asked "open" or "save" and if save, where you want to save it. Or, you could just print it out. Hope this helps.

The "download now" is right under the picture of the shawl.

Lovely! can't wait to get started!
