Star

Decided to try to make a star this evening. Starting for Christmas very early this year!
Had originally intended a 5-point star but it turned out better as a 6-point. It only took me about 2 hours max so I decided to share the pattern.


Christmas Star - tree decoration

Make 12 diamond shapes as follows:

Cast on 10 sts.
Row 1: K1, K2tog, K5, Inc K-wise into next st, K1 - 10 sts.
Row 2: P1, Inc P-wise into next st, P5, P2tog, P1 - 10 sts.

Repeat these two rows 3 more times.

Cast off.

Arrange the diamonds in a circle with cast on edges all facing the same direction.

Join the diamonds together in the centre as shown below:

From the 12 diamonds, you should end up with two stars each consisting of 6 diamonds sewn together.
With right sides to outside, oversew across all outside edges, stuffing lightly as you go. (Initially I sewed it together with right-sides together to hide the seam but it meant that the points weren't as sharp).

Sew a small loop to the end of one point.

The star can now be decorated with beads or hung on the tree as it is.

Lovely star! Please can you tell me what size needles and what kind of yarn are you using?

I used double knitting yarn and 2.75mm (US2) knitting needles.
You could however, use any size yarn and needles - it'll just change the size of the star.
