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 and embellished with a third contrast colour. 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. You can find suggestions of colour palettes for this design here.
