Celestina Square Shawl
For this square shawl, I wanted to divert from more commonly used floral motifs and instead introduce a celestial yet simple theme. The inspiration behind this piece came from the “3from3" stitch, which has always reminded me of a star. From that subject, I designed three stitch patterns for the center, hem and edge naming them “Constellation", “Milky Way" and “Little Star" respectively. Hence, the name “Celestina".
The shawl is made in two steps without breaking yarn. In the first step, you will knit a square center section in the all-over lace motif "Constellation" which is surrounded by a thin garter-stitch frame. Secondly, a lace edge is worked around the square outwardly. The lace edge consists of the two stitch patterns – “Milky Way" and “Little Star".
The pattern includes written (row-by-row) instructions, charts, tutorials and provides a clear guidance throughout the entire process.
Sample is made in Henry’s Attic Moriah (2520 yards / 2304 meters, 100% superfine merino wool)
