Choose all your favorite speckled yarns and knit the large shlanket (shawl + blanket) of your dreams or select three colors for a small version. Short row wedges with colorful stripes form the starburst shape. Pick up stitches and knit along the border to accentuate the jagged edge.
A tiny cable completes the shawl with a decorative finish.
