Starfall is a bandana cowl featuring a cascade of assigned pooling stars on a stockinette stitch background. Knitting begins in the round at the neck with a reverse stockinette rolled edge. Simple shaping at the center front creates the look of a triangle shawl, and Old Shale Lace adds a beautiful, scalloped edging.
Choose a fingering weight yarn that is dyed for assigned pooling, with an accent color run of about 8 - 10” long. Hand-dyed yarns vary, and the pooling color length can vary from skein to skein! You may have a longer pooling color run, which you can address by having color streaming on each side of your stars. Suggestions are given in the pattern for managing your color.
Blocking is magic! You’ll want to wet block this piece to make it the star of your dreams. Pattern includes a blocking tutorial.
Finished measurements of sample cowl: Neck 22” (56 cm) circumference, front from neck to point 20” (51 cm), back from neck to bottom 14” (36 cm), bottom circumference 23” (58 cm), wet blocked.
