Lucky Star is a crescent hug of garter stitch stripes, interspersed with an intriguing star stitch. The shawl is knit from the top down, then finished with Old Shale lace for a scalloped edge.

Designed to use mini skeins in coordinating colors, you can knit a rainbow, or a subtle gradient shift. You can use fewer, larger mini skeins, if that’s what you have. You could even use a continuous gradient, if that’s what makes you happy! The garter stitch makes this a most meditative knit…or a multi-tasker’s dream.

I’ve developed a better garter tab cast on for top down crescent shawls, and it’s debuting in this design. It reduces the hump that can happen at the center neck of a crescent shawl. I hope you like it as much as I do! The pattern contains a link to videos for the cast on, and for the star stitch.
