DESCRIPTIONSTAR CROSSED is a truly oversized pullover inspired by the stars, from the grand Polaris to each little twinkle in the night sky. The pattern is designed to work with a wide range of positive ease (8-18”), and the instructions include options for two necklines (cowl or boat neck) and measurements and yardage for two lengths (cropped or full). Featuring bottom-up, drop shoulder construction, the pattern also includes an optional modification for a custom fit bicep, so you can achieve your ideal oversized fit.

This sweater was designed for a worsted weight wool in two colors. The main color is Jill Draper Makes Stuff Windham (113g/220yds per skein), a super soft domestic Merino with a classic 4-ply construction, and the contrast color is Spincycle Yarns Dream State (100g/150yds per skein), a superwash Merino dyed in the wool to create slow, dramatic color changes throughout each skein.
