I tried to link to AmyS too but can only link to one Raveler. Tammy and Amy are pictured here wearing Nakshatra at the 2012 Chain Link conference in Manchester NH.

I originally designed this wrap to wear while teaching the Love Knot Adventures class in Manchester because I could use it to illustrate several things about crocheting love knots.

It has since become the prototype for the Electra Wrap, which is in the summer 2013 issue of Interweave Crochet magazine. (See the Electra Wrap project page.) This one is more aquamarine colored due to the mohair strand I used; Electra is more ocean blue, and glistens more, because the mohair strand in that one is bluer with a bit of metallic.

Breathtaking to crochet! A visual thrall, for others too. Not sure the best way to capture its full effects in photos, so I uploaded several in different lights and perspectives.
