Thank you so much to the test knitters - your shawls are all gorgeous!

Starfluff Shawl is an invitation to experiment with textured yarns and combine two unlikely skeins. This design features Full Moon Fibres who creates vibrant, original hand-dyed colours in Ontario.

This design alternates a simple texture stitch (that looks woven) with an easy tulle lace stitch. The final section is a repeat of the texture section worked by striping both yarns (one at a time).

To finish, a loopy crochet fringe is added using both yarns held together and fluffy tassels complete the creation.
