Pay What Works: Aiming to balance fair and sustainable designer compensation & a realistic representation of the work that goes into knitwear design and accessibility, we’re offering a Pay What Works model with this pattern where you can choose a price that is accessible to you.

The full pattern price as shown on the right reflects the work that went into creating this design best. If a different price point is more accessible to you, you can use the following codes to purchase this pattern at a price that works for you (a Pay What Works implementation that, to my knowledge, was first initiated by Frenchie, thanks so much for the inspiration!):

No code: 18€ (100%)

Sustainablist80: 14.40€ (80%)

Sustainablist60: 10.80€ (60%)

Sustainablist50: 9€ (50%)

Sustainablist40: 7.20€ (40%)

Please note that depending on your location VAT will be added when you check out.

Stern comes with instructions for two different gauges and both a steeked cardigan and a pullover version. It’s worked seemlessly from the top down, making it extra easy to try it on as you go and determine your ideal length.
