The Stardust Collection combines my love for weaving with my fascination for the universe. A binary star consists of two stars that orbit a shared center of gravity. Just like the sun, a binary star can be the center of a planetary system. Binary stars form when a star-to-be breaks into two pieces and both develop into a star. The pattern of this shawl is inspired by a binary star, as the complete shawl contains just two repeats of a large star motif.
