The tubular construction means the fabric has no ‘wrong’ side, and provides added insulation. Traditional colourwork star motifs are arranged in close formation, a geometric twist on a classic.
Skills needed include a provisional cast on, knitting in the round, stranded colourwork, Kitchener Stitch or grafting, and working from a colourwork chart. Tips for swatching in the round, casting on, and Kitchener Stitch are included in the pattern.
