Lucky Star is a crescent hug of garter stitch stripes, interspersed with an intriguing star stitch. The shawl is knit with fingering weight yarn from the top down, then finished with Old Shale lace for a scalloped edge.
Designed to use mini skeins in coordinating colors, you can knit a rainbow, or a subtle gradient shift. You can use fewer, larger mini skeins, if that’s what you have. You could even use a continuous gradient, if that’s what makes you happy! The garter stitch makes this a most meditative knit…or a multi-tasker’s dream.
I’ve developed a better garter tab cast on for top down crescent shawls, and it’s debuting in this design. It reduces the hump that can happen at the center neck of a crescent shawl. I hope you like it as much as I do! The pattern contains a link to videos for the cast on, and for the star stitch.
