Starshower is a shawl-cowl hybrid. It is shaped as a shawl, but mostly worked in the round - so it can be worn as a shawl, but without the ends dangling down. The simple Open Star stitch pattern perfectly complements Anzula’s sparkly fingering weight yarn, Nebula, though the pattern would work just as well with a favorite semi-solid or variegated sock yarn. (Sparkle is encouraged, but not required.)
Yarn: 400 yds/ 366m of a fingering weight yarn
