One of my favorite things to do in the wintertime is to go outside at night and look at the stars. Of course, that’s fun to do all year round, but there’s something about the extra quiet of a winter night that makes the experience all the more magical. It’s a great technology-free way to bond with your family, friends, or a significant other, and you’d be surprised how many constellations you can identify even with some light pollution!
There’s no need for nighttime or telescopes for these easy knitting patterns, however. Inspired by the night sky, these starry knitting projects will help you capture the magic of stargazing without even needing to go outside!
