The Sidere shawl kit is the 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 Luna Grey Fiber Arts hand dyed 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
