Tamara Moots Nebula Shawl PDF
The bottom lace panel of the Nebula Shawl designed by Tamara Moots uses simple increases and decreases to draw groups of stitches into soft, undulating curves to evoke the wild beauty of the dense cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space that forms into nebulae in our night sky. The main body of this woman’s shawl is a triangle knit from the top down in stockinette stitch with a simple yarn over increases, garter stitch edging, and a bottom lace panel. The Nebula lace pattern is charted and written out.
