Crochet stars

One more post and I'm done for today. :-)

Here's a star I made using a pattern from a magazine I can't find right now, so I can't tell you the name. *L* It was either Crochet Today or Interweave Crochet.

Anyhow, the design was for this star mounted on a Christmas card. I skipped the card and just stuck it on the tree as is.

I discovered I dislike doing picots. Especially the triple picots on the tip of each point.

Looks pretty, though.

Having found some more glow in the dark yarn - way too late for the garland I'd needed it for - I made this. I used the free pattern from Bernat to make a pair of stars. I put them together by doing a round of sc along the edge and stuffed it with polyfill.

I so enjoyed reading about the Christmas ornaments you have made and the stories behind them! What made me laugh was reading about when you taught yourself to croche becasue of the baby blanket and then make the beautiful ornaments for your tree. The reason I laughed was I decided to learn how to croche and guess what I am starting with?? Wash cloths! I found it amusing you took on a blanket and I am starting with wash cloths! At least they are the same shape!
