Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

You are invited to join the StarLight KAL.

The StarLight shawl is a double-knit triangular shawl. The pattern allows you to adjust the size of the shawl.

2 x 135 g of fingering weight yarn in contrasting colours will give you a shawl which is 184 cm (72″) long and 33 cm (13″) wide at the midpoint.

For my StarLight shawl I used 2 skeins of Wollmeise 100% Sockenwolle, but there are several other yarns that would work well, including Eidos or Skinny Bugga from the Sanguine Gryphon, or Kauni, or Palette from KnitPicks, or just about any other fingering weight yarn.

The pattern will include detailed instructions on double-knitting. So it is an excellent way to learn a new technique. If you’re already a double-knitting expert, just enjoy the shawl

The pattern is available in English, German and French here.

    Hi Anna,

    How many balls of yarn would I need to make the Starlight shawl if I was using Skinny Bugga?

  2. Anna says:

    Heather – You'd need about 1.5 skeins of each colour.
