Stars....


....lots and lots of stars. Using up loads of bits of wool for these, then I'm going to make them into bunting/garland type thing. As the wool for each is different, it makes the stars different sizes, and they are really quick to make so the piles are growing quite quickly. They are worked just like a granny square except you start with a chain of 5 instead of 4, then work 5 trebles for the first round (instead of the four as you would on the granny square), then continue on as many rounds as you like, then I just do 2 rounds of single crochet to finish them off. These definitely need blocking to make the points more pronouced. Apologies for the appalling explanation :o), but if you can do a granny square, you can do one of these. Have fun x
