Here is Stjerneskud for small people


Stjerneskud Cardigan for grown ups was created for Knit Stars 5, which features a complete video class on the Ziggurat construction.

SIGNUPS for the NEW Knit Stars 7 and all previous seasons will open again in autumn

::Size 4 years is included as a bonus pattern in the Knit Stars class::

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.

And what better place to start than with a mini version?

Stjerneskud features the steps and details common to most other Ziggurats.

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

Tailored, 7/8-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.
