This shawl was designed as part of the 2020 Mad Scientist Yarns Advent Calendar and those who purchased the calendar will receive an early-release of the pattern. The pattern will be officially released on 1st January 2021.

The kit I used was Jekyll on the Stellar 4ply base.
The yarns I used can be purchased individually from the Mad Scientist Yarns website although please note that at the time of publishing, there are no more advent kits available for this pattern - only full size skeins.

This pattern is a one-size semi-circular wrap designed to look like an exploding star. Working from the inside out this shawl expands into a cacophony of textures and colours that will wrap you entirely with its almost 3m wingspan!

Instructions Included:
-- Standard written instructions

-- This shawl is an intermediate pattern and you will need to know how to UK treble crochet US double crochet, UK double crochet US single crochet, chain, be comfortable with long front post stitches, bobble stitches and working in the round.

Yarn Requirements:
