Notes From the Designer:
•Sweater weather is coming! Make this two-color, top-down pullover your new winter favorite. The colorwork section is easy but engaging, and the body and sleeves knit up quickly in worsted weight yarn, so you’ll be ready for that early season snowstorm when everyone else gets caught off guard.
•Pattern includes three charts, but here’s a fun surprise: they’re interchangeable! You can knit the pattern as written, or switch the chart order as you please.
•This pattern does not include neck shaping. The large, ribbed neckline is worked as you go on the same size needle as the main body (instead of knitting the neck ribbing on a smaller size needle). The idea is to create a neckline that can be worn on or off the shoulder; it looks cute both ways!
•If you are new to fair isle colorwork, or tend to be a tight knitter, you might want to consider changing to a larger needle size just for the colorwork section, to maintain the correct gauge. Make sure to knit a gauge swatch before beginning your project.
•If working with multiple skeins of hand-dyed yarn, make sure to alternate skeins every couple of rounds to avoid color pooling or striping.
•This pattern was inspired by an early Lisa Loeb song called “When All the Stars Were Falling.” It’s one of my favorites from her first album because the lyrics are so descriptive. I love the idea of trying to catch a falling star. The different chart patterns in the yoke are meant to emulate stars as they fall closer and closer to Earth (and get bigger as they come near). I’m not sure if I really managed to achieve that, but I hope you enjoy knitting this sweater and listening to some mid-90’s folk/rock. Maybe wearing this sweater will help you catch your own falling star (or at least avoid getting hit by one).

I can't wait to start this. It will be next year before I can start but it looks like so much fun.
As Christmas is nearing I don't think I'll get to this until after the new year, but it's a gorgeous pattern, I'm new to color work and am anxious to try knitting it - and hope I succeed!

A beautiful pattern
I really think this is a beautiful pattern and hope to do it soon.
Beautiful pattern Thank you
So pretty and thank you the expanded size range
I have read through the pattern and am confident it will be a fabulous addition to my wardrobe. It is written in a very straight forward way and I do not perceive any issues; even if undertaken by a beginner sweater/fair isle knitter. I do plan on adding a few short rows to elevate the back of the neck a bit. I received my yarn this AM - Expression Fiber Arts Enduring Worsted in the colorways Burgundy for the body and Lavender Tea for the color work. The yarn itself is a work of art! As I am a monogamous knitter, I have a skirt to finish before getting started on this beauty. Thanks Chandi!
This is gorgeous. Have not made it yet but love the color work .
This is the most difficult pattern I have ever attempted! It is simple to read and understand. Nothing makes a challenge easier than a well written pattern! Thank you so much!
