Tess is a crescent shaped shawl knit from the bottom up starting with a crochet chain cast-on (photo tutorial included). The pattern is presented as a series of charts, although some written explanations of stitches are included. The body is shaped using short rows in an Estonian star-stitch pattern creating an open feel and interesting texture. Three sizes (S, M, L) are included in the pattern. There is also the option for adding beads.
