“Starlet” is a triangular shawl knit side to side on a bias in a fingering BFL and mohair/silk yarns held together.

The slip stitch pattern adds lovely texture while mohair content creates beautiful halo.
This shawl starts with 1 stitch cast on and can be knit to a variety of different sizes depending on yarn availability.
The sample shown uses BFL fingering weigt (600 meters) and 2.5 balls (525 meters) of Rowan “Kidsilk Haze.

It is also suited for different weights of yarn such as heavy lace, sport or a dk. Use mohair yarn with thinner yarns and use thicker yarns on their own to create slightly different effect. One might also try a variegated version.

This pattern has been designed for all skill levels.
It can be easily followed by a novice knitter.
