Starburst Shawl Pattern


Categories: ,


The Starburst Shawl is a bold and exuberant design! The colors were inspired by a photograph of magic lilies–the 16 shades are used in wide bands in the large (112 stitches square!) motif. However, it would look stunning in indigo blue & white or dark sheep’s gray & cream, or whatever 2-color combination you choose.

The shawl is knit in the round from the point upwards in a giant cone that you cut open to reveal a triangle. Borders are knit on to hide the steeks.

The size of the motif presents some challenges. The chart is split into 6 parts–you knit to the center and then reverse gear.¬†You will need to trap some long carries, and the chart is impossible to memorize. On the other hand, it’s fun to knit something complex without worrying about fit issues.

The “Buy product” button takes you Ravelry, where you can purchase and download the pattern.
