From Artic Lace: “The North Star is a classic symbol of Alaska. This tam and scarf are both made with lace-weight 100 percent qiviut yarn. Both the scarf and the sides of the tam are decorated with star motifs. The scarf, knitted back and forth, is less challenging than the tam. If you have some experience knitting lace, you will find the tam pattern exciting. Starting in the center with just eight stitches and working in the round, you increase with yarn-overs to form a beautiful circular lace star on its crown.”
