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.
