Stars in the Sky Shawl – by Emily Foden
Stars in the sky is a textured, square shawl that is seamlessly knit in 3 sections. First a center square is knit on the bias in a simple textured stitch pattern. Second, stitches are picked up along the outer edge of the square and a star stitch border is knit around the center square. The border incorporates subtle striping to showcase the beautiful colour gradations in Alpaca Supreme. Last, a simple crochet picot edging is worked around the outside of the shawl to finish.
