Asterism has plenty of relaxing garter stitch and delicate eyelet details that add interest and lightness to the shawl. The shawl begins with just one stitch and is knitted on the bias to the opposite edge, creating an asymmetric triangle shape. The simplistic beauty of Asterism makes it a versatile and wearable accessory for any outfit.

Asterism is also available on Stars Line Up Collection with its scarf version Orbit.
