spotlight on … tres spectra

I love going out on clear winter nights to gaze at stars and this led me to think about Annie Jump Cannon and her work on stellar classification. I believe that she could classify three stars a minute, and that’s how my Tres Spectra was discovered.

For more on Annie, I highly recommend The Glass Universe by Dava Sobel.

I wanted a stitch pattern that would work well with the subtle colours of the The Yarnbrary’s Fantasy Worsted and still feel like a star. The stitch I fell in love with worked well when knitted flat, and it took several iterations of swatches to find how I wanted to rework it in the round.

That’s why you won’t find it in you favourite stitch dictionaries!

I want to thank Stitchmastry for being incredibly straightforward and easy to use. That I can easily design and integrate symbols for my stitches has helped me streamline my pattern writing process.

If you would like to own the Tres Spectra pattern, you can purchase it on Ravelry.
