About this Pattern
It’s such a magical feeling when the stars align and everything falls into place. But it’s not just stars that align, its yarn and patterns too! Reach for the Stars is designed for one skein of variegated sock / 4 ply or fingering weight yarn. Maybe you have a one off skein in your stash waiting for the right pattern to come along to show off its beauty – well, this design is the one to do just that. It’s a fun, quick knit which will make your yarn the star of the show!
The asymmetric triangle is worked in stockinette throughout the body before alternating with starlit zigzags of eyelet mesh towards the border. Once finished this shawl will be one to reach for when you need a reminder that anything is possible!
If you are new to knitting lace, this shawl would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Using just yarnover and k2tog stitches to create the lace, each section is worked between markers so you can easily keep count of your stitches.A video tutorial on how to work the [yo, k2tog] stitch combination can be found here https://www.undertheolivetreeknits.com/lace-stitches.html
