Pattern Notes
Inspired by the recently declassified UFO videos from the Pentagon, Bellatrix is out of this world! This kerchief-sized project is knit sideways from tip to tip in five brand new and exclusive alien inspired colorways from Madelinetosh.

After the piece is completed, I-Cord ties & edging are added along the top edge for multiple styling options. The best part? During color changes, ends are tied to one another forming the fringe, so there are virtually no ends to weave in!

The stitch pattern is both written and charted.

You can find the sister project to this kerchief, the Circinus hat, here.
