Description
A bright, deep red is actually the darkest color, and the one with the most impact, in the Icelandic Star cardigan. An almost-as-dark central band gains contrasting punch from an edging of very bright blue bands and a subtler in-between green. Embroidered stars, added during finishing, allow three colors to exist in the same row. A classic yoke construction keeps the knitting easy.
