Cirrostratus is a textured, light shawl, named after thin, hazy, high level cloud that forms at high altitude in blanket-like layers. These ethereal clouds often produce a halo effect around the sun or moon.

Two interchanging stitch patterns create interesting textured layers, holding interest from start to finish. Slipped stitches add depth and loftiness.
