One of the more difficult pattern stitches in the collection, open star stitch produces a lovely, soft, lacy look similar to crochet with lots of stretch. Body is worked all-in-one piece from the bottom-up. Sleeves are worked separately from the bottom-up. Shoulders are sewn, sleeves are set-in. Sts are picked up and worked for collar.
