Introducing: Half the Knit Sky

Half the Knit Sky is a half pi shawlette, based on a time lapse photo of the night sky. Shown above in Knit Circus Sparkle Gradient, The Knit Sky, and Knit Circus Trampoline, Mistress of Myself.

This easy knit uses only one color per row. Slip stitches create the colorwork star trail stripes, and the Star Stitch rows are a pop of fun. A bit of lace near the end sends you into orbit! The half-pi construction keeps your patterning simple with only occasional changes in stitch count.

Shown here in Knit Picks Hawthorne Kettle Dye, Delphinium, and Knit Picks Hawthorne Speckle, Blueberry Speckle.

The pattern is easily adjustable to the yardage you have. It requires two 100g skeins of fingering weight yarn.

Half the Knit Sky pattern is available through Ravelry, and it’s 10% off through July 14, no coupon code needed. If you’re a newsletter subscriber, check your email for your special offer. If Ravelry’s recent website renovation renders the site unusable for you, please email me or leave a comment here, and I can send you an invoice through PayPal instead. It’s a little slower, but it works.

I’m planning a KAL for this design, to be through this blog, Instagram, and Ravelry. Whatever works best for you! Please use #halftheknitsky to participate on Instagram, or this thread on Ravelry to participate there. Comment on this post, or any later posts about Half the Knit Sky, to participate through the blog.

I’m very pleased with this design, and hope you love it, too. Come knit with me!

  1. The beauty of an extensive stash is having the perfect yarn for projects when they are announced! I will be using a skein of Juniper Moon Farm Herriot Fine in Villa Blanca colorway, and a skein of Expression Fiber Arts Cashsilk Sock in The Lights Are Turned Way Down Low colorway.

    I have a sweater on needles, I need to wrap up, but this is next!

  2. I have bought her, the beautiful creature.
    I am looking forward to getting my temperature blanket totally organized so that I can decide about yarns and start on her.
    I shall consider the KAL but I – being ancient ! – am better at doing anything at my own speed ..
    Ve shell zee ..
    How I do admire you, you clever woman !

  3. I am in! I have bought the pattern and have my yarn lined up. 🙂
