The Starry Starry Night Shawl is a garter stitch modular wrap with short row shaping. I’ve always loved the art of Van Gogh, and I designed this shawl with Starry, Starry Night in mind. His use of simple brush work with incredible colours, swirls and unexpected shapes to create evocative paintings has always been a source of joy for me.
