Starry is a sweater of unusual construction. The yoke is made from modular elements; but all of them are knit-on each other; all are worked in-the-round from edges to the center and therefore do not require seaming.
The rest of the sweater is also worked in-the round.
Techniques used: increases and decreases, short rows, and pickin-up stitches from the edge (there's alot of picking up in the yoke!).
Please keep in mind that the fading color on the prototype on the photos isn't described in the pattern. I had to combine five different colors because I didn't have enough yarn.
For sizes A, (B, C, D, E, F, G): you will need fingering-weight yarn (aprox. 400m/100 g) in the following amounts (meters) solid/selfstriping: 1000/400 (1150/410, 1300/420, 1450/430, 1600/440, 1700 /450, 1850/460).
If you want stars to match, you will need more selfstriping yarn. How much more depends on how many repeat there are in the skein.
You will also need some scrap yarn for the sleeve sts, a tapestry needle, a stitch marker, and circular needles:
- shorter 2.5mm needles with metal tips for the stars and neckband
- long 3.5mm needles for the body and sleeves
- optional, but highly recommended: washable fabric glue to secure the knots at the center of the modular elements.
Gauge: - approximately 22 stitches and 30 rows = 10cm for bodice and sleeves.
The stars are about 10-11cm across.
Sizes: with suggested gauge, sweater fits 86 (96, 104, 112, 120, 128, 132) cm. bust circumference. If you’re between the sizes, either knit a larger size, or adjust your gauge (switch to larger needles).
