Designed for Marianated Yarns’ Knitmas 2018 Kits, the Beryllium Shawl begins with just two stitches and increases into an asymmetrical triangle shape. Slip-stitch patterning is used for eye-catching stripes of color, as shown here in a gorgeous new interstellar gradient, Galaxy Quest (hence the pattern title—we’re both fans of the iconic 1999 movie). The patterning is easy enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging and fun for a more experienced knitter.

Never give up, never surrender!

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.
