Stargaze Shawl

Warm. Whimsical. Wearable. 

Pattern Information

   Perched on a mountain nestled deep in the Colorado Rocky Mountains lies the quietest of stargazing locations. Far from the glow of the city, it’s a peaceful place to view the star’s ancient stories, sent as twinkles and gleams of old light from their faraway home. It’s a chance to reconnect with the past, appreciate the present moment, and let the imagination run free with hopes for the future.
   Wrap up in your own easy-to-wear, crescent-shaped Stargaze shawl. Capture starlight in rays of mock cable eyelets and watch the swirling colors unfold in the body of the shawl. Explore the universe while knitting interconnected galaxies out of lace and cables in an applied border. Round out the expedition with a seamless icord border, a beautiful frame to a newly-knit miniature universe.
