Sagitta - the arrow

  Sagitta, the Latin word for arrow, is a constellation located within our Milky Way galaxy.  Not to be confused with Sagittarius (aka "the  archer") which is a much larger constellation, and is located in a different part of the galaxy.  Sagitta was identified by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and can be seen from every location on Earth except Antarctica.  

Various arrow motifs appear within the shawl's fabric. Yarn Over lace patterns form the arrow motifs and large beads emphasize the arrow points.  The designs in the center are set off by garter stitch edges.  This design becomes a long rectangle shawl, or stole, and can be easily made wider by adding repeats of the central motifs.  Wrap this shawl about your shoulders as you go star-gazing for Sagitta, the "arrow."
