About Star Anise

Star Anise by Emma Wright is a luxurious, stranded colour-work sweater knit in five shades of Acadia. The pattern for this drop shoulder design offers options for either a wide OR tapered sleeve, and a crew or high neck.  This is a project for knitters after something extra special for spring!

This boxy sweater is knitted bottom up seamlessly in the round to the underarm where the work is then divided to work the front and back sections flat. The sleeves are also knitted bottom up seamlessly in the round to the underarm to then be attached to the divided section (armholes) of the garment body. The ribbed neckline is picked up last.

Star Anise is the seventh pattern from The Almanac Series.

Based on the original farmer’s Almanac guide to the seasons, this collection acts as a guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. and celebrates each month of the year by giving knitters the chance to sample our Yarn of the Month, with a new design launch.

This year’s Almanac has a theme of herbalism to recognise the importance and heightened appreciation of maintaining health in these times.

In the second half of our first Almanac Series collection, we embrace the Spring Summer season, where each month’s yarn has been specifically chosen for its qualities to compliment colder conditions. February is the month of Cirro, March is Acadia, April is Canopy Fingering, May is Luma, June is Amble and July is Meadow.
