    Enjoy garter stitch stripes with this bursting star-shaped shawl. Each section is knit flat and joined together with the previous section by picking up stitches. The striped parallelograms increase in size to form the large geometric star. Fold the fabric in half and wrap the points around for a graphic and stylish shawl.
