Kuutar is a Finnish word meaning “the lady of the moon” or “the goddess of moon”.

The Kuutar pullover is knitted seamlessly top-down starting at the neckband. The sleeves and body are separated at underarm and knitted separately. The back is shaped with short-rows to give it a bit more length and to improve the fit.

The lace pattern is modified from a lace chart found in the Japanese knitting stitch bible by Hitomi Shida.
