Christmas is around the corner, ho ho ho! I am just too excited for all the pretty decorations, all the red, all the cheer, the joy, the christmas tree, the lights, and the music. And holiday baking! can't forget that! Last year I made Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (free pattern), this year I'm focusing on stars. We want to remember that the Wise Men followed a star that led them to Jesus (Matthew 2:1-12).
To make the stars from the picture you'll need:
Cotton Yarn such as Lion Brand Yarn 831-106 Kitchen Cotton Yarn, Blueberry
Size G hook - I use Clover 1045/G Purple Amour Crochet Hook, Size G, 4.0mm
Ribbon of your choice to tie and hang
Needle to weave the ends such as Susan Bates Needles Bent Tip Steel #13 & #16
The beauty of this pattern is that it only takes two rounds to complete the star.
Begin with with a magic ring and tighten it after completing the first round.
The pattern uses the following stitches:
P.A. = Punto Alto = Double Crochet
P. Deslizado = Slipt Stitch
P.A.D = Punto Alto Doble = Triple Double Crochet
The excitement has been so much this year that I started making these stars for the Christmas tree back in September. I have made several of them and I have to thank Ahuyama Crochet for the free pattern. It's in Spanish, but it's very easy to follow. Follow the information above to make the stars.
Experiment with a larger hook to make bigger stars for a banner.
