Summer Sky’s beautiful lace pattern is worked in open star stitch. You’ll enjoy knitting it and watching the richly textured surface grow. The garter stitch stripes punctuating the lace give the shawl a vibrant and dynamic look.

Summer Sky is worked diagonally from one tip to the opposite side of the triangle. The slightly asymmetric shape is created by increasing on one side and decreasing on the other. This shawl is a perfect project for those precious single skeins in your stash.

One skein of DyeForYarn Merino/Silk Fingering (75% merino wool, 25% silk; 400 m / 437 yds per 100g). Shown in colourway Melting Milk Chocolate Truffles.

Or approximately 400 m / 437 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

Size 4 mm / US 6 needles or size to obtain pattern gauge

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
