Rising Star Sweater, by Elena Dimchevska is a beautiful drop shoulder, wide crew-necked sweater with lots of beautiful texture.
This is a great project to help you improve your lace knitting technique, with the ‘rising star’ of the pattern’s name coming from the single lacy motif panel that runs up the front of the sweater.
Knit in Cirro, this sweater is incredibly light and so soft, you will have to feel it to believe it! With three to five inches of positive ease, Rising Star might just be the cosiest sweater you ever make.
Rising Star Sweater is worked bottom up, in the round, to the armhole, at which point the front and back are separated and each is worked flat separately. The shoulders are then joined and stitches are picked up around the armhole for the sleeves, which are worked in the round from shoulder to cuff. All hems as well as the neckband are finished with a 2×2 rib.
The Rising Star Sweater is knit in Cirro, from The Fibre Company, a sport weight, brushed yarn, made of a Suri Alpaca, Merino, & Cotton blend.
