Summary: Spiral Nebula Shawl is simple knitting with a distinctive shape. Let your yarns be the design. Can be knit in any weight yarn and size. The Spiral Nebula Shawl pattern is a good choice where you want to let your fancy yarns be the design element.
Spiral Nebula is a fluid asymmetrical crescent-shaped wrap that shapes itself naturally in gently curved lines outlined in lacy yarn overs.
The slightly more-than-semicircle style lies nicely around your neck and stays on your shoulders for carefree wearing. This adaptable wrap can be arranged in a variety of ways, so have fun and wear with flair!
Easy knitting makes this a good choice for the beginning knitter, or even the more advanced knitter who just wants to relax and let the yarn be the design element.
The shawl starts at the neckline and is knitted to desired length (or the amount of yarn you have), thus eliminating the need for exact gauge or pre-planned measurements.
There are two versions for ending the shawl included in the pattern instructions. The first is to simply bind off loosely (which is good if your yarn is already the focal design element and there really is no need for a fancier edge). The other version continues the front edgings along the bottom edge in an uninterrupted pattern using short rows and mitered decreases - no grafting needed!
Guidelines for needle size and yardage for various weights of yarn and shawl lengths are given in the pattern.
