A unique top down shawl inspired by the movement of light through our celestial heavens, triangular sections of slipped stitches are like swatches of starbursts reaching across the galaxy. A vertical column of garter stitches branches apart to make way for a comet of movement and the final border has 3 rows of falling stars.
