Dancing Galaxies is an infinity scarf featuring a big mosaic stitch pattern that draws the shape of spirals on a dark background.
The spiral shapes are slightly irregular and surrounded by randomly scattered light color stitches, reminding me of dancing galaxies in the night sky.
It is worked flat to the desired length, then grafted.
