Farpoint is an asymmetrical triangular shawl knit from side to side on the bias. Designed by Vanessa Smith and inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation, this shawl combines texture and color blocking to highlight unmistakable elements of Starfleet uniforms, including four bobbles reflecting the rank of captain. Mosaic knitting is used to create a knitted galaxy of countless stars - a glimpse into the final frontier.
Our model is in Jorstad Creek Cornwall in Sour Apple (main color), Medium Gray (contrast color), and Natural (accent color).
