So I know I just posted about this, like, two days ago. And I know that in that post I said that Starshower would only be available at the Anzula booth at Stitches West this weekend and that I wouldn't be releasing it into the wild for a little while after that. And I know that I just had another pattern release less than a week ago. But, as it ends up, Anzula has completely sold out of Starshower patterns, and so many people have asked about it, that I got a text message from them saying, "Hilary! You have to release it NOW!" And who am I to say no?
Starshower - $5 via Ravelry (no account required)
As described in my last post, Starshower is another of the cowl-shawl hybrids that I can't get enough of right now -- shaped like a shawl, but worked in the round -- and is large enough to wear as a capelet as well. The pretty Open Star Stitch pattern that encircles the piece nicely complements Anzula's just-sparkly-enough yarn, Nebula, and if you're not one for sparkle, any single skein of pretty fingering weight/sock yarn will do.
Finished measurements: 22”/ 56 cm circumference at top opening; 17.5”/ 44.5 cm height at center
Yarn: Anzula Nebula 84% Merino, 16% Nylon (Polyamide); 400 yds/ 366 m per 115g; 1 skein in Sexy; Or 400 yds/ 366m of a fingering weight yarn
Needles: US 6 (4 mm) circular needle, 16-24”/ 40-60 cm long
Gauge: 19 sts & 32 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Garter Stitch; 18 sts & 27 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Open Star Stitch
