Phosphene is the medical term for "seeing stars" which is what I think of when I see these circular motifs linked together with little star shapes, in between. While a triangular layout is indicated in this pattern, modular designs can be assembled in any number of configurations, from cowl, to stole, to blanket or even a table runner, you are only limited by the amount of yarn you have and the type of yarn and hook size you choose. Motifs are charted and written out, using standard American crochet terminology. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet double crochet triple crochet chain blocking slip stitch GAUGE One motif is approximately 7" / 18 cm after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 63" / 160 cm wingspan, 35" / 89 cm depth after blocking SUGGESTED YARN 1250 yards of Lace weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Lorna's Laces/Helen's Lace COLORWAY Grapevine
