I developed this pattern from a traditional star pattern from
Hemnesberget Norway, in Nordland.
It is worked in the round, bottom up with steeks.
The body and sleeves are joined to work the yoke.
It has short rows above the neck to make the back neck
with improved fit. The only finishing is
to sew on the front bands, and kitchener stitch under
the arms.
This cardi went together really fast!
Complete charts and instructions included.
I used Finullgarn light grey #403 for the background and
Kauni 8/2 effekt garn EL 150 “midnight sky” for the color on
the body and the background on the yoke. I tell how I worked
this sweater to make the colors change at the same
levels on the body and sleeves in the pattern.
