Stars are a common motif in traditional knitting and, with a clear contrast, the pattern lights up against the dark background, exactly as stars in the night sky. Just as individual stars align to form constellations, the small motifs in a large pattern can convey a special meaning for you or for someone you love. The cardigan is knitted in the round, from the bottom up, following the charted pattern.
