Diana – celestial mkal
Diana is a crescent-shaped shawl with a broad center. It is Hayley’s first open-lace design and debuted with four Dye Diana Dye colorways as part of an exclusive kit for the enVision Celestial MKAL in August 2016. The pattern and the four colorways – Sol, Luna, Mars, and Venus, in edgy (with speckles) or elegant (without speckles) – are now available individually.
Diana is worked from the top down with increases at the edges as well as through the body and uses approximately 500 to 625 yards / 458 to 575 meters of lace- or heavy-lace-weight yarns. The shawl may be knitted with or without beads.

Lace- and heavy-lace-weight yarns are suitable. Finished dimensions may be adjusted by using different yarn weight and needle size to achieve varying gauges. Until 30 September 2016, yarn and pattern are available as a kit only.
Gauge isn’t important but will determine the final size of the shawl. With an open-lace design, knitters may go up or down a needle size or two to easily achieve different sizes and results.
Circular needles in size US4/3.5mm, US5/3.75mm, US6/4mm, and US7/4.5mm depending on your knitting tension, crochet hook, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needle, T-pins, and blocking wire(s) and mat (optional).
