The vast night sky, filled with its twinkling diamonds, reminds me to take a breath and remember that we are but a small part of the universe. Designed as a big sister to the Stargazer shawl, Nightwatch is a one-skein shawl with wide, alternating bands of eyelet mesh and stockinette to show off the beauty of your yarn.
Here, the eyelets are like the millions of stars that dazzle through the night. Watch as a colorful new galaxy is created while you work with a variegated yarn. Whether you’re contemplating the universe or just watching the stars, Nightwatch will be your perfect companion.
If you are new to knitting lace, this shawl would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. A video tutorial on how to work the (yo, k2tog) stitch combination can be found here https://www.undertheolivetreeknits.com/lace-stitches.html
