In the ordered movements of celestial bodies, runaway stars are the renegades. They move to their own beats, make up their own rules, and run a little wild. So too does this shawl, where you’ll need all your knitterly tricks to follow the star’s path. Cables, colourwork, slip-stitch patterns, and lace all come together in an unusual shape reminiscent of a star’s wake across the sky. Wrap up and use the unique Starpoint as an optional built-in brooch to pin it in place.
The shawl is knit from the Starpoint tip with increases every 4th row along a central “spine” which make the shape an elongated mitred kite shape with a shallow point at the BO edge. The Starpoint is made with two-colour cables, the Starburst and Two-Colour Eye of Partridge are slipped stitch patterns, followed by a Staghorn Cable section which leads into the long lace column section.
The kit includes pattern by Phibersmith and all the yarn required to knit this beautiful shawl. The yarn in each kit is grey plus an accent colour of your choice.
