Shooting Stars Cowl


Esther Chandler


A pretty stitch pattern using a mix of star stitch and the broomstick lace technique creates the “shooting stars” effect used in this cowl.

This piece is worked back and forth in rows to make an “L” shape. The ends of the “L” are then stitched together to make a cowl where the corner of the “L” makes the downward triangular point of the cowl. You can adjust the number of repeats of rows depending on your gauge and size of “broomstick” used; therefore gauge is not critical.

Materials List

You will need a “broomstick” (i.e. a ruler or large diameter knitting needle) for this project.

Example pictured used less than 100g of Manos del Uruguay yarn – 270m of heavy dk or light worsted weight yarn.

You will also need a size 6mm crochet hook.

Finished Size

Length is around 64cm, width 27 cm.  You can adjust your finished size by adding more rows (therefore gauge is not critical).


The shooting stars stitch pattern is made up of rows of star stitch followed by rows of broomstick lace – instructions included.
