Seastar is inspired by the magical moments spent exploring the little tide pools along the shorelines of a rocky coast. One of the most iconic creatures living in those delicate ecosystems are starfish, and that’s exactly what decorates the front of this pullover. A cute, zig-zag lace motif graces the sleeves and allows you to enjoy the cool ocean breeze without sacrificing a touch of warmth. This sweater is perfect and practical for spring, summer, and fall because it includes options for both long and short sleeves, so you can customize this piece to suit your preferences!

This Starfish motif in this sweater is worked using intarsia. When changing to a new color, bring the old color up and around the new color to prevent any holes from forming in the piece. Use a separate ball of yarn for each section. Please note that there are not written instructions for the intarsia chart.
