(Psst....read to the end to find out about the giveaway Jackie and I are running...)
or purchase Sidere with the Starbright yarn as a kit here.
Sidere (Latin for starlight) is a lighter-than-air, crescent-shaped, asymmetrical shawl worked from the top down with increases on every row. A very simple stitch pattern creates tons of texture on the shawl and resembles twinkling stars....bands of Stockinette short rows break up that texture intermittently and give the shawl its asymmetrical shape. The shawl is beautiful draped over a lightweight tee or a spring dress, but it also works fabulously as a wispy scarf.
