Grab three gorgeous skeins of fingering weight yarn and
capture your very own comet in knitted form with Hale-
Bopp Shawl. Alternating lace, garter, and textured stitches allow you to play with colour and ensure the knitting never veers towards boring. An unusual construction results in a dramatic asymmetrical crescent with an elongated tail. Choose high contrast colours bright enough to light up the night sky or keep to neutrals for a more subdued look. Originally designed as a Mystery Knitalong, Hale-Bopp Shawl stands alone on
its own as a fun, interesting knit with easy wearability.
