This kit includes a colour-printed pattern card with full instructions in all sizes and all the Alice Starmore 2 Ply Hebridean yarn required to make the Polaris in your chosen size and colourway. Polaris is a standard fit cardigan with set-in sleeves. The body is entirely worked in the round and the sleeves are knitted separately in the round to the armholes, with the sleeve caps knitted back and forth in rows. The Polaris is shown here in a Background Colour of Shearwater, Pattern Colour of Kittiwake and Contrast Colour of Sea Anemone. You can also see a swatch with a softer contrast of Background Machair, Pattern Spindrift and Contrast Golden Plover. You can choose your own selection from our available Hebridean 2 Ply colours below. You can also find some Polaris Colour Palette inpiration here.

Polaris is a defining constant in our northern sky and so high definition is the key for this cardigan design. The tesselated star pattern is framed with deep ribs which are emphasised in a bold knit 3, purl 3 format. The design is worked in two main colours, shown here in Shearwater background and Kittiwake pattern. The design is edged and embellished with a third contrast colour, worked here in Sea Anemone. The tiny touches of contrast embroidery, which are optional, are worked at random at central points of the star pattern. This design is ideal for personalising with your own choice of background, pattern and contrast colours. As an example you can also see a swatch with a softer contrast of Machair background, Spindrift pattern and Golden Plover contrast. This subtle combination gives warmth but still allows the pattern definition to show clearly.
