Here’s sweet little star shaped motif that I’m going to call the “Grammy Star.” You only need three different colors for each star. Of course, you can work with however many sets of colors you want so it’s a great way to use up your smaller pieces and skein ends.
As I love to do, I’m using Peaches and Cream, 100% cotton yarn–because it comes in every color imaginable and because I love the natural soft feel of cotton.
With color A, ch 6, join with a sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 2 for first hdc, 11 hdc in ring, sl st to top of beg ch. Fasten off.
Rnd 2: Join color B in any hdc. Draw up 1/2″ lp, yo, draw up lp, yo and through all lps on hook (beg puff st completed), ch 1, (yo and draw up a lp) twice in next st, yo and through all lps on hook (puff st completed), * ch 3, puff st in next hdc, ch 1, puff st in next hdc, rep from * around, ch 3, sl st to top of first puff st. Fasten off.
Rnd 3: Join color C in any ch-3 sp, ch 3 for first dc, (dc, tr, ch 3, tr, 2 dc) in same ch-3 sp, sc in next ch-1 sp, *(2 dc, tr, ch 3, tr, 2 dc) in next ch-3 sp, sc in next ch-1 sp, rep from * around, sl st to top of beg ch. Fasten off.
Shape your star by gently tugging at the star points.
Otherwise, it may just look more like a flower than a star. I do suppose it’s pretty either way.
My favorite thing is how they just fit so snugly together. I haven’t sewn my stars together yet, because I haven’t made up my mind about what these little stars are going to be when they grow up.
