Scientists predict that a new star will be born near the Cygnus constellation… in 2022. This shawl is my celebration of the highly anticipated celestial event.

Boom Star is made with eye-catching star stitch on a stockinette background. Starting from the upper right corner, the shawl is knit on the bias to create an asymmetric triangle. Garter-stitch wedges made with short rows give the shawl a gently curved shape. Main and contrasting colors are inverted in the wide garter-stitch border, ending the shawl with a bang.
