Midnight: sky of the deepest blue, moon’s silver crescent, twinkling stars… This shawl is inspired by the North Star - mankind’s constant companion and essential nighttime guide since the dawn of civilization. Fifteen large lace diamonds form the central star motif, which is placed on a background of smaller shapes reminiscent of sparkling stars. Beads are placed throughout the lace to further enhance the impression of a starry sky and to provide extra texture and drape to the finished piece.

Polaris is knitted in one piece starting at the outside edge of the lace section followed by easy short rows (no wraps), which give the shawl its versatile crescent form. The elongated shape offers numerous ways of tying and draping without the need for a shawl pin. This project is not difficult even for the beginner lace knitter because the lace pattern is formed with fairly basic stitches, the reverse rows are purled and the addition of beads is optional.

Originally Susanna IC Mystery KAL lace crescent shawl.
