Aether is the material once believed to fill the sky above the terrestrial sphere, a fifth element through which light travels. Starlight was the inspiration for this geometric lace pattern, with mesh triangles forming a mosaic of starbursts on a background of garter stitch.
The Aether Shawl is a delicate triangular shawl in laceweight yarn, worked from the bottom up. Stitches are picked up around the diagonal edges and a simple garter stitch border is worked to finish.
