Starburst Sweater KAL via ZOOM!

The Starburst Sweater by Julee MacKessy embraces the idea of order out of chaos, with a beautiful pattern of entwining and twirling twisted stitches radiating out from the neckline in this textured, round yoke pullover. A top-down, seamless construction means that you start with the twisted-stitch pattern before relaxing into the mindless knitting of the stockinette-stitch body and sleeves.

Starburst pattern- not yet published to the public but will be provided as part of your registration fee. 

Cumbris Fingering wt yarn - based on your pattern size. 

PRIOR to first gathering please knit a gauge swatch in the round.

T E N S I O N 24 sts and 30 rnds to 10 cm (4 in) measured over st st after blocking using 3.75mm (US 5) needles. It is vitally important to check your tension before starting to knit your garment as the tension governs the finished size. If you work to the wrong tension, your garment might not fit as shown in the photograph and you may run out of yarn, or need to buy more. Check your tension by working a swatch at least 20 cm (8 in) square. If there are more sts and rnds to 10 cm (4 in) than stated, try again using thicker needles. If there are fewer sts and rows to 10 cm (4 in) than stated, try again using thinner needles. Yarn quantities are based on average requirements and are therefore approximate. Pattern is given for the smallest size, with changes for the larger sizes given in square brackets [ ] afterwards. Where only one figure is given, this refers to all sizes. Repeat the figures in round brackets ( ) the number of times stated afterwards. This pattern is written and tested for the specified yarn from The Fibre Co. Using another yarn might not achieve the intended results. For tutorials and helpful tips please visit resources/learn-with-us
