SIDEREAL is knitted in one piece from the top down. Tiny diamonds grow symmetrically off the spine of the shawl on the mesh ground. The main body is framed with a wide band of garter that beautifully offsets the negative space and highlights its delicate gauzy fabric.
The shawl is knitted in a 3-ply fingering weight yarn with an excellent stitch definition in semi-solid Cobalt Blue and reminds me of a starry night sky.

The stitch pattern is both charted and written out for your convenience.
