“Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are?…” 
A big, beautiful ball of fire. That’s what! The Solar Flare Pullover celebrates the awesome power of those sweet twinkling stars in the sky. It is knit from the top down using mosaic knitting. No stranding needed! Slipped stitches create solar bursts that radiate out from the neck and are repeated around the entire yoke. The technique is simple enough for beginners, but fun for experts, too. The Solar Flare Pullover gives knitters lots of color options. Variegated and solids. Solids and solids. Bright. Neutral. Practically any combination will make a big statement with this pullover.
