This was designed to be an easy and relaxing project, especially good for summer travel. The fabric is lightweight and airy, yet provides warmth on chilly summer evenings. It uses a two color star stitch pattern the whole way through, creating an interesting lace texture. The sample used three colors that effortlessly blend into each other.

I used three skeins of fingering weight yarn. My sample was with a superwash merino, but you can easily substitute for your favorite fiber. I used all of each skein.
