Beginner: This pattern is for those crocheters who are ready to combine basic stitches to create a simple filet crochet pattern. Skills/concepts include the option of learning foundational single crochet and beginning double crochet stitches.
Notes From the Designer:
The deep colors and bright shine of our Sparkle DK yarn inspired this stellar wrap. Simple double crochet and chain stitches create a filet crochet starburst motif. The star-forming region of 30 Doradus is one of the largest located close to the Milky Way. About 2,400 massive stars exist in the center of 30 Doradus, which is also known as the Tarantula Nebula.
To refine the edges, try replacing a foundation chain and single crochet base with foundation single crochet stitches. A video tutorial is available. Instead of starting double crochet rows with three chain stitches, which can leave a gap, use a no-turning-chain beginning double crochet stitch instead.
Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial of this pattern! You'll learn how to work a double crochet, chain space, beginning double crochet and foundation single crochet.

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” - Vincent Van Gogh
The title says it all! I adore this pattern. So glad it comes with a layout picture. I sometimes have a difficult time getting the written pattern through my head. I get mixed up, just seeing the picture of its stitch placement, makes it easy for me. Love this.
I have not yet made the shawl, but I have made a sample swatch to practice the pattern and I love it! It is super simple, but the effect you get from the spaces is stunning. Most of my shawls are for gifts, but I will definitely be making this one for myself. The video was also very helpful for the beginning double crochet. It truly makes a difference in the neatness of the edges. Thank you!
Beautiful pattern. Thank you!
I made this shawl in 5 days and couldn’t be happier with the result! It’s a simple yet beautiful pattern and the stars look great! I chose a sparkly yarn and it turned out just lovely! Thank you for another great pattern!
Both the shawl and the yarn are beautiful. I have not crocheted my yet but will do once I get the yarn.
