“Starry Night” was designed for 1 precious skein of luxury sock yarn; The Blue Brick’s December/January club colour in a merino/cashmere/stellina blend for 420 yards of smooshy, sparkly goodness.

The pattern itself works equally well with variegated and tonal yarns, and is an easy, mindless knit, while producing a beautifully textural shawl. Large needles make the piece fly by, and allow you to block to a very generous size if desired.

There should be four markers in the set up row, which is worked as follows:
Set up row 1: Slip 1, k1, place marker, yo, kfb, place marker, k1, place marker, kfb, place marker, yo, k2. (11 Stitches total)

There are 18 repeats of the body (including the initial repeat), for a total of 155 stitches

There are 6 repeats of the openwork (including the initial repeat), for a total of 203 stitches

There are 6 additional repeats of the body, for a total of 251 stitches

There are 12 additional repeats of the openwork for a total of 351 stitches

| Pattern notes:
‘Starry Night’ is structured such that you can begin the openwork at any time, and switch back to the ribbed texture at any time, so the pattern is very easy to customize to different yarns and different tastes. This pattern as written is designed to use up almost all of a 420 yard skein of fingering weight yarn; the sample had 5g of yarn remaining after cast off.
