Sorry for being so scarce! We had Exams, a School Nativity play, and a School price giving this evening. Busy Busy!
I have a little star pattern for you. Little if you crochet it with dk yarn or cotton. Or BIG if you use bulky or t-shirt yarn. Have fun and do show us if you make some.
The pattern in words. Photos after that.
I use US terms and any yarn and the hook size recommended for the yarn.
A 12 mm hook for the t-shirt yarn (bought from 50 Something Yarn Shop)
A 4 mm hook for dk cotton yarns.
Just one important note! Be carefull NOT to pull your magic ring too tight, otherwise your star will be floppy.
In Magic Circle, ch 2, 12 hdc, close with ss in first hdc
ch 1, 1 sc in same closing ss.
*In next stitch: 2 dc, ch2, 2 dc
In next stitch: 1 sc* repeat x 4
End with 2 dc, ch2, 2dc and close round with a ss in to the first sc
ch 1, 1 sc in same closing ss
*Into ch 2 space:
ch 1, 3 hdc, ch3, 3 hdc, ch 1
Into sc: 1 sc* repeat x 5
Close round with a ss into the first sc, cut your yarn and pull through to the front.
Then work the ends away at the back.

Round 2 pictures
Round 3 pictures
Close round 3 with a ss into the first sc
Then you can either work your ends away at the back or use them to tie your star to a tree or present.
These two stars were crocheted with eco-fusion from Nurturing Fibres
Vinnis White Cotton for the white ones.
Vinnis Tori for a bulky star. They are great on gift bags!
And here I tested the first one with t-shirt yarn
And one with 4 ply cotton from Elle -Yarns
Ok, I think you get the idea! You can crochet this little floppy star with any yarn in your stash!
I’m off to Langebaan. The two teenagers are both receiving academic prizes tonight.
