Earthstar shawl.

Dazzle your world with this Earthstar shawl. Hand-knit in a beautiful purple and turquoise variegated gradient Merino wool, this shawl is a combination of slip stitch cables and mosaic lace. Soft and cozy, it will keep you warm and comfy, even while out gazing at the stars.

 

Notes on project:

Loved making this Earthstar pattern by Nim Teasdale, and my speckled gradient from light purple to turquoise worked beautifully with its dark purple variegated mate from Mad Scientist Yarns. There was enough cables and mosaic stitchwork in this pattern, to keep the garter stitch from becoming boring which is a big plus in my books. I’m a lace knitter, and stockinette and garter stitch are my nemesis.

Color: Purple and Turquoise variegated gradient.
Size: One size (S – XL), Measures 56″ wide by 24″ long.
Material: 100% Merino.
Gently hand wash – Lay flat or dry clean.
