On summer nights on our old farm, we would lay out in the field on a frayed quilt while constellations bent over us—some bright, others dim, and all seeming both light-years away and in the palms of our hands. Milky Way evokes the comfort and warmth of those nights under the dark sky. A sideways-knit, garter stitch triangle featuring slip-stitch stars, Milky Way uses three shades of yarn and a shifting interplay of color. Requiring just simple increases, decreases, and slipped stitches, it’s an easy knit that will let you focus on your own stargazing.
