“For my part I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” --Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh, post-Impressionist artist, is famous for his “Starry Night” painting, where he depicted the view from his window, a dark sky full of twinkling stars, a crescent moon, and concentric swirls of light.

The Stargazer scarf has tiny bits of sparkle just like a clear night sky. For the scarf you have the option to use a fingering weight yarn with beads included, a fingering weight yarn that has metallic threads such as Stellina included, or use a fingering yarn and add your own beads (easy instructions included), or use a yarn with no beads or sparkles. It’s your choice, and either way you will crochet a beautiful scarf!

The Stargazer is crocheted from side to side and you start with a few stitches and end with a few stitches. The rows are crocheted on the diagonal, increasing and decreasing on opposite row ends to form the boomerang shape. The edging on the top and bottom edges is crocheted as you crochet through the rows. So, when you finish the last row you are finished!

The Stargazer is crocheted with an easy-to-memorize stitch and row pattern. I used the Katia Sunset yarn, with beads included and just enough to add a tiny bit of sparkle. I encourage you go with the beads and create a dreamy, scarf that has just a tiny bit of twinkle to it, just like the sky on a clear night.

Yarn used: Katia Sunset in color #101, Rose
