Here you can purchase Asteria printed instructions. You get the instructions as black and white print. If you would like the instructions as download, you can get them HERE.
The instruction is an easy model for beginners. Skillful increases and decreases create the shape of the five jags. You work in rounds, without seams, so there is no need for tedious sewing.
The Asteria can be knitted from 12 months to elementary school age, only the run length of the wool changes. In the instructions you will also find an extension to more than five jags and how to knit the Asteria up to adult size.
The changed division of the stitches with a different gauge or yarn is easy to calculate. Formulas for calculating other sizes and yarns are included in the instructions.

You need for the Asteria printed instructions a yarn cake with at least 500m, 4-ply, and a knitting needle 3.5mm. Alternatively, you can use sock wool, but also any other yarn. However, I cannot give you any run length information for this.
If you work the extension of the model, by several jags, the material consumption also increases.
We wish you a lot of fun with the Asteria printed instructions!
