Stjerneskud Cardigan is Knit Stars 5 exclusive pattern

There is also a bonus mini cardigan included for Knit Stars knitters – size 4 years

The patterns (with more baby & child sizes) will become available to all sometime next year

Like all Ziggurats, Stjerneskud is knitted top down with contiguous sleeve caps and built-in front bands.
Elegantly seamless, and designed specifically with knitters new to Ziggurating in mind, Stjerneskud is a stylish, wearable cardigan on which to learn the method.

To this end the cardigan features the steps and details common to other Ziggurats.

Your cardigan will have beautiful drape, overlapping fronts, no buttons, and a squarish, almost swingy shape that is easy to wear.

Tailored, 3/4-length sleeves make a quiet but distinct statement with a sweet keyhole cuff (photo tutorial in the pattern). An optional gather at centre back lends a little bit of extra ease.

Wear it as final touch to a more formal outfit or throw it on to jeans or over a comfortable dress.
