Rainfall / Starfall Shawl Kit in Bunting DK
The Starfall and Rainfall shawls are cozy, asymmetrical triangles that use a simple stitch pattern to big effect! They are knit with the wonderfully squishy Bunting DK, a 100% Falkland Island Corriedale wool yarn.
These shawls celebrate little stitches. Starfall uses the cross-stitch, and the sister pattern, Rainfall, uses an Estonian button stitch. Instructions for both stitches have been included so that you can mix and match as you’d like, but be aware that they have different gauges and use a different amount of yardage, so it’s a good idea to weigh your yarn so you don’t have to play yarn chicken.
These patterns include charted instructions only. Written instructions will be added soon!
