A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

This is a Fiber Coven MKAL. The pattern is available to Fiber Coven Patreon members for $5 exclusively. You only need to join the Coven for 1 month to get the exclusive price.

Inspired by fashions from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, this modular shawl is the perfect accessory for a hyperspace journey. The shape is a take on a triangle shawl but uses modular techniques to show off a self striping yarn and make the shape easier to wear. Grab a coordinating tonal, solid, or speckle yarn to pair with your self striping yarn and create an out of this world shawl. The shawl features a clean modern look that would be at home on any starship.

Yarn:
Fingering Weight in 2 colors
C1 Solid/Tonal/Speckle: 460 yds / 420 m*
C2 Self Striping/Variegated/Microstripe: 460 yds / 420 m

If you have a skein that is under 460 yds / 420 m you can still use it as C1. You will need an additional mini skein or scrap (about 10 grams). This can be used for Clue 3 for a contrast pop.

Sample shown in Valkyrie Fibers Matte Sock in Ghost Crew and Spectre 5.

Yarn Color Tips:
The sample shawl uses a coordinating skein that is the same color as one of the stripes in the self striping. It will look good whether you do this or choose a totally separate color! It will also work with either high contrast or low contrast pairs.

Needles:
US 4/3.5 mm 50”/135 cm circular needle

Gauge:
24 stitches x 36 rows = 4” in stockinette, unblocked

Notions:
Darning needle for weaving in ends
Stitch Markers
