When I started designing this pattern I imagined myself back at our camping trips, sitting around the bonfire staring at the sky, looking for the stars. ⁣

This summer we went camping when the comet Neowise was passing over Ontario and it was such a wonderful thing to experience with the kids. ⁣

So this design is totally inspired by the sky and the way the treetops look when you look up. ⁣

Do you like staring up at the sky? Do you like naming the constellations?
