Fly me to the Moon
“Fly me to the Moon” is a seamless shawl knitted top-down from the central neck stitches to the edge. The shawl is shaped as a triangle. The pattern is a cable pattern that has lace like effect after blocking.
The sample shawl in the photographs was knitted with 21 vertical repeats of the cable pattern and after blocking measures 180 cm (70.9 inches) for the straight edge on the top of the shawl and 76 cm (29.9 inches) for the height of the shawl at the center. You can easily make it bigger or smaller by adding or taking away pattern repeats. The shawl design is modular and the border pattern can be started after the desired number of the body pattern repeats is knitted.
Instructions are combination of charts, tables and written instructions.
