Starshower is another of the shawl-cowl hybrids that I can't get enough of lately. 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl simple increases and decreases knit in the round yarnover GAUGE 18 sts & 27 rows = 4"/ 10 cm in Open Star Stitch 19 sts & 32 rows = 4"/ 10 cm in Garter Stitch Meeting these exact gauges is not crucial, but any major differences will affect the size of the finished cowl.
