If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

You can also find the printed pattern at Loop London as well as kits!

A broad band of slipped stitches twinkle at the edge of this cozy triangle shawl, making it the perfect companion for an evening under the stars.

Under the Milky Way is knit from the top down, with a generous garter stitch body setting off the “stars” along the edge.

Choose any of the galactic colorways of Primo Fingering from The Plucky Knitter for a stunning accessory you’ll love to wear.

Abschnitt 4, Reihe 3 muss lauten: “…wiederholen bis 4 M vor dem MM, 1 abh (Fh), 2 re, 1 re verschr, M1R…”
Corrected two little mistakes in the German version:
Abschnitt 4, Reihe 3: 1 re, kfb, 2 re verschr -> 1 re verschr
Abschnitt 4, Reihe 7: 1 re, kfb, 2 re verschr., 2 abh (Fv) -> (Fh)
