Starry in English

“Starry” was a word which had been echoing in my mind for quite some time… Isn’t it a perfect theme for a Christmas pullover?
And the word has led me to this pullover worked in a lovely stitch which evokes scintillation of stars, enhanced by the sparkles of the beads – added one by one… A project a little bit crazy but the result is worth the effort, isn’t it?
Lovely, festive yet elegant, Starry is the perfect Christmas pullover and your little one will love it for sure!
