As this design came together, we were struck by the way the finished piece resembled the tail of a comet. So, naming it Hayley’s Comet just felt right.

Oh, the possibilities! Hayley’s Comet is an asymmetric triangle, knit in your favorite Plucky fingering weight yarn or, if you’re up for an adventure, mix those bases, and/or use a sport or dk weight. And the color choices… they are endless! You might choose to knit yours in Oxford, perhaps using a palette of earthy/heathered colors. Or, maybe look to the sky, finding inspiration in
celestial blues to knit with Plucky Bello. Whichever way you knit it, wrapping a comet around your neck is a sure way to keep out the winter winds!
