NightStar Shawl

Nightstar Shawl

 NIGHTSTAR is a triangle shaped shawl.  It begins with a garter tab that extends to become the garter edge.  A stockinette field grows from a center spine of repeating star stitches.  The lace pattern is totally reversible and worked on a multiple of two stitches.  If you desire a larger project, just work more rows of this section.  Increasing within a row of star stitches creates the bottom wave.  Beading adds sparkle and helps the shawl to hang well.  The bottom edge is reverse stockinette and rolls to the wrong side.

 Much thanks and gratitude to Merilyn and the gang at FoxyKnits for introducing this pattern at 2014 Stitches West.  If you are looking for the perfect yarn, go no further than Koigu.  One skein makes the stockinette section and one skein for the lace and beaded edge.  I'm partial to the subtle solid colors (KPM), but check out all of the Koigu options at FoxyKnits.
