What about a Thor’s Star Cardigan for Christmas?

Thor’s Star, by Cynthia Atley Peterson / Ravelry.com

Woman’s cardigan in 6 sizes from XS 35″ to XXL 48″ finished size. Thor’s Star was made from the inspiration of the wallpaper on ThorNews, knit in Rauma Finullgarn and Kauni Effekt (color-changing) yarn or other fingering wieght yarn.

The star is also a very old Selbu pattern with my own twists on the yoke. It uses Finull by Rauma for the background and Kauni for the design.

It could be fun to knit with many different colors placed as you wish or just 2 solids. It is made from the bottom up; joining sleeves and body for a one piece with yoke.

Very little finishing. Steeks up front and separate button bands. Included are the instructions for a Channel Islands cast on and Channel Islands bind off for trim using a contrasting color.

I made 6 sizes this time from 35” circumference to 48”

6-9 50gm balls of Finull and 2-3 150g balls of Kauni Effekt yarn 8/2
