Shattered Stars is a stunning semi-circular shawl, worked top down with a diamond motif. In Ancient Greece, diamonds were believed to be fragments of the stars and here you can see them falling from the sky and getting bigger as they reach the bottom of the shawl. This is the perfect way to show off a favourite yarn!
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions, so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
