This Across the Galaxy Shawl is the perfect accessory to jazz up my little black dress for a night on the town! I will have to add it to my "for later" list because I'm not at this level of crocheting yet but it always helps to have those patterns that we can dream about creating in the future as our skill levels increase! Thanks for this beautiful pattern to dream about!

This Across the Galaxy Shawl is so lovely. It's airy enough to protect you from the chilly air of fall or spring. It's a great accessory to for an evening out with a special someone or even just with friends. A handcrafted master piece that will enhance the beauty of your outfit.

I just finished an afghan over the weekend that looks almost identical to this shawl. The afghan has pineapple patterns between the starbursts as shown in this picture. I even made it this exact color. It turned out beautifully. So I know this will look just as good when it is finished.

Hi! I have a question about large motif 1, round 4. I did not understand the first step of slip stitching in first 3 ch. Can someone help please?

You will make a slip stitch in each of the next 3 chain stitches. This is done to bring you to the stitch you need to be in to begin working the next round. Otherwise your motif will not be aligned correctly, and the pattern will not work. I hope that helps.

Make sure you choose a nice lightweight yarn for this project! At the beginning it calls for worsted, but if you use worsted you're going to end up with a super thick winter poncho, haha. This pattern is beautiful and the intricacies won't show unless you use the correct weight of yarn.

Thank you for this shawl pattern! I've printed it out and I've headed to the stash to find the perfect yarn!

I loved this pattern...enjoyed making this lovely shawl!

Luster Sheen IS still available! I just did a search and found it at Joann's. My only issue with this is that at the beginning of the pattern it calls for worsted weight yarn which is a '4' but Luster Sheen is weight category '2'. And that would make sense for this lovely light pattern! I hope this helps someone! http//www.joann.com/red-heart-luster-sheen-yarn/zp == rd12377073a.html

I believe lustre sheen has been discontinued. Can you suggest a substitute?

I love these patterns, but dont you have a diagram along with the written pattern? Works easier that way. Hopely its possible to give a diagram too.

Very pretty crochet patterns, only would be easier to have a diagram of the pattern. Works much easier that way.

There's a downloadable pattern with diagram on Red Heart's website http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/galac == tic-shawl

There should NOT be the 2 equal signs in the word galactic, I don't know why that always happens??

My guess is a weird html glitch. Here is the corrected link http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/galactic == -shawl

Let's try that again - it did the same thing to me! www.redheart.com/free-patterns/galactic-shawl
