Quasar is a simple lace shawl designed to show off those gorgeous skeins of variegated yarn that you just aren't sure what to do with but that are too pretty to keep in the skein.
It is knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
It can easily be customized by changing the number of repeats of chart 2 to make the shawl larger or to use a different weight yarn. If you would like a longer edging, chart 3 can be modified by adding repeats or additional rows.
22 sts/32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on size 6 needles with fingering weight yarn
Exact gauge is not important but do note that a looser gauge will result in the use of more yardage
I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love.
You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
