Stellaria is inspired by the fascinating shapes of the Lady’s Mantle plant with its thick sculptural leaves and multitudes of tiny blooms (CHART ONLY).

Stellaria is a crescent shaped shawl, worked in one piece from the garter stitch top down to the lace borders. The floral shapes are created by numerous increases giving the shawl a slightly ruffled edge after blocking.
