Starshower - A Sneak Peak

As I mentioned earlier this week, I'm a little bit obsessed right now with shawls knit in the round as cowls. Or cowls knit as shawls. Or whatever you want to call it. Because once I got that idea in my head, I just couldn't let it go.


Starshower is knit with a single skein of Anzula's just-sparkly-enough Nebula yarn in their new colorway, Sexy, and is constructed, again, like a shawl. Top down, starts with a garter tab CO, with regular increases worked until it is joined to work in the round. This cowl features the pretty Open Star Stitch pattern -- each band looks like a sprinkling of stars...
 

and it is large enough to wear as a capelet, if you so choose.


Starshower will be making its debut at the Anzula booth at the Stitches West marketplace this weekend -- stop by to pick up a copy of the pattern, along with your choice of pretty, pretty yarn, and to see the sample in person!

And if you happen to see me loitering in the booth, please say hello!

that is SO beautiful!! And I love cowls that can be worn as caplets, so perfect for taking the chill away when you're seated indoors and there is a draft somewhere.

So pretty! When will it be available to those not going to Stitches West?

I really, really like this design and approach to neckwear. Cowls and capes are my favorite.

It's beautiful and the colour is perfect!

Beautiful. I bought the yarn at the Stitches yesterday but they did not have the pattern. I was told that it is on Ravelry but don't see it there. Is it under a different name?

Hilary said...

Stacey and Carolyn -- thank you! :)

Monika -- The pattern hasn't been released yet, and was supposed to be exclusive to Anzula for Stitches West...but then they completely sold out! Check back in tomorrow morning...I'm going to release the pattern on Ravelry first thing. :)
