A cheery little starry pullover, free in celebration of Independence Day. This patriotic(ish) little sweater is perfect for all those summer barbeques. Suggestive of being star spangled without being overtly American flag (unless, of course, you pair it with your crocheter friend’s baby wearing Stripes--imagine the photos! Such cuteness.) This little T a versatile summer getup, guaranteed to get your babe (not to mention your knitting prowess) a lot of attention.

This sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. Because of the long expanses in the color work, it is very important that you wrap your floats every few stitches. If you’ve never done color work before, make sure you understand that this is a little more on the advanced side before getting started.

Pattern contains a detailed chart for each size, as well as written instructions to help with understanding the shaping. It also contains a schematic and comes with full one-on-one designer support.
