Soft and textured, Northern Sky is a beautiful triangle shawl knitted from the bottom up. The open star stitch creates a light and airy fabric with fluffy textural interest, especially with cashmere yarn. The size is adjustable, so you can make it exactly the size you want. This shawl is a relaxing and meditative knit, with a simple rhythm that is easily memorised after the first few repeats.
