Glistening Stars is an exploration in Nordic Star motifs. The many different stars spread out over an unusual shaped shawl, full of twists and turns. Glistening Stars is a double-knit shawl.

2 x 150 g of Kauni Effektgarn weight yarn in contrasting colours will give you a shawl which is 195 cm (76,5”) long and 30 cm (12”) wide at the midpoint.

For my Glistening Stars shawl I used Kauni Effektgarn EZ and EY, but there are several other yarns that would work well, including Wollmeise 100% Sockenwolle, or Bugga from the Verdant Gryphon, or Palette from KnitPicks, or just about any other sport/fingering weight yarn.

The pattern includes detailed instructions on double-knitting. So it is an excellent way to learn a new technique. If you’re already a double-knitting expert, just enjoy the shawl.

Since it is double-knit, the shawl is fully reversible.
