Loop - Under the Milky Way

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 28 in stock

A stunning pattern designed for us by Melanie Berg using Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering

Available through both Melanie Berg (Mairlynd on Ravelry) as a PDF and through Loop as a single printed pattern.

Top Tip: If you are choosing other colours to knit this pattern in, you should always have the main colour as the darker colour and try to have two colours that have good contrast to them. 

A broad band of slipped stitches twinkle at the edge of this cosy triangle shawl, making it the perfect companion for an evening under the stars. Under the Milky Way is knit from the top down, with a generous garter stitch body setting off the “stars” along the edge.

Choose any of the exquisite colourways of Primo Fingering from The Plucky Knitter for a stunning accessory you’ll love to wear.

One size:
245cm (961?2in) along top edge x 60cm (231?2in) deep (see schematic)
