Quasar is a simple lace shawl designed to show off those gorgeous skeins of variegated yarn that you just aren’t sure what to do with but that are too pretty to keep in the skein. It is knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern. It can easily be customized by changing the number of repeats of chart 2 to make the shawl larger or to use a different weight yarn. If you would like a longer edging, chart 3 can be modified by adding repeats or additional rows.
