Inspiration: I am completely obsessed with stars nowadays, so this was my first choice of a great stitch pattern for the planner. The stitch is fun to work and is perfect for crazy variegated yarns. Just remember to leave the stitches on the needles the first time you work the p3tog and your knitted stars will be shining in no time!
Tip: Always keep track of where you are in your knitting project – you think you will remember, but you won’t! I like to jot down a note in my planner about my status on all my knits so I can pick them back up without having to be a knitting detective.
