Perched on a mountain nestled deep in the Colorado Rocky Mountains lies the quietest of stargazing locations. Far from the glow of the city, it’s a peaceful place to view the star’s ancient stories, sent as twinkles and gleams of old light from their faraway home. It’s a chance to reconnect with the past, appreciate the present moment, and let the imagination run free with hopes for the future.
Wrap up in your own easy-to-wear, crescent-shaped Stargaze shawl. Capture starlight in rays of mock cable eyelets and watch the swirling colors unfold in the body of the shawl. Explore the universe while knitting interconnected galaxies out of lace and cables in an applied border. Round out the expedition with a seamless i-cord border, a beautiful frame to a newly-knit miniature universe.

Construction & Schematic
This shawl is cast on (1) with an i-cord cast on and is then worked top-down (2) with 8 increases alongside the stitch patterns every other row to fill out the body.
An i-cord cast on (3) is used to continue the i-cord and create stitches for the border, which is worked as an applied edging (4), binding off 1 stitch every 2 rows.
The shawl is finished with an i-cord bind off. The last 3 edge stitches are grafted together with 3 stitches from the icord bind off for a continuous i-cord edge (5).
