Space Cadet


Hey there, Space Cadet! Ready for your interstellar journey through a galaxy lightyear’s away? Cosmic orbs adorn this engaging top-down triangular-shaped shawl, giving a hint of texture amid the lacework.

In junior high (middle school to some of you folks), we had to plan a “mission to Mars” and what we would bring with us. My 12-year-old brain wasn’t thinking of logical things I’d need to survive on an unknown planet, so when I showed up on launch day, I had my saxophone and books. My way forward on a new planet was the arts! When I reflect on this, it makes me giggle considering the creative role I find myself in as a knitwear designer. It’s like it was written in the stars, that I’d be in a form of arts. ❤️

Worked flat, Space Cadet contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.


Space Cadet is available in German & English.
