Sunburst Check Pattern

Contributed by Hildegard M. Eisner, Aldan, Pennsylvania

This beautiful pattern comes from Austria, and lends itself to a multitude of uses. It is informal enough for ski sweaters, yet disciplined enough for fascinatingly embossed coatings. It will also make delightful afghans and baby blankets.
