This long curved shawl or wrap features a section of lace, a band of vertical stripes and loads of garter stitch. The lace portion reminds me of twinkling stars at night giving way to the Sun’s bright rays in the morning, represented by the vertical stripes.

The shawl was made from two skeins of Anzula Squishy yarn (385 yds each) in the colorways Charcoal and Poppy. This yarn is exquisitely soft and indeed “squishy.” There are loads of fabulous colorways to choose from and you’ll want to experiment with them all.

The pattern contains written instructions and a photo diagram to make knitting this shawl, section by section, a breeze.
