Perfect gift for the knitter in your life. Or, treat yourself with a ready-to-knit project!
This kit comes complete with a PDF copy of accomplished pattern designer Hilary Smith Callis's lacy shawl pattern, Sidere, as well as one skein of silky soft Starbright yarn in your choice of colorway (color shown: Radiant Orchid). This is an intermediate level pattern.
In the designer's words..."Sidere (Latin for starlight) is a lightweight asymmetrical shawl. Knit from the top down beginning with just a few stitches, Sidere’s crescent shape is created with increases placed in every row and its asymmetry is the result of short rows worked in Stockinette stitch between bands of a very simple textured stitch pattern. The stitch pattern gives this airy piece a great deal of surface texture that resembles sparkling stars converging on one end of the shawl, and a picot bind off echoes the same texture at the edge."
Length of top, straight edge: 78”/ 198 cm
Height at thickest part of center: 18.5”/ 47 cm
Required Needles/Notions (not included in kit):
US 4 (3.5 mm) circular needles, at least 32”/ 80 cm long, or size needed to obtain gauge
1 stitch marker
20 sts & 32 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Stockinette stitch
20 sts & 40 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Starlight pattern
Meeting these exact gauges is not crucial, but any major differences will affect the size of the finished shawl as well as yarn requirements.
