Polarstern is a star shaped feminine shawl worked in two-color brioche knitting, featuring a colorful foreground and a deep blue in the background. Polarstern is the German word for North Star. It was such a delight to knit this colorful yarn: as if I have had a rainbow on my needles! Repetitive increases and decreases give the shawl its unusual shape. Stripes appear by changing foreground and background alternately. The main color is then worked as an applied i-cord for a clean finish. You end up with a very feminine shawl, a perfect pattern to relax and very suitable for someone looking to tackle a brioche project that is lovely and large without being overly complex.
You'll need two skeins each of two colors in Yummy 2-Ply (4 skeins total) to complete this project. Alternatively, you can work this shawl in a Gradient Set and a background color. Our second shawl was knit in the Celestial Explosion Gradient Set and two skeins of Interstellar Estrellita.
You can purchase the pattern for Polarstern directly from the designer on Ravelry. All patterns are sold separately and not included with purchase of yarn.
