"When You Wish Upon a Star",
you get a snowflake too !
Pattern by : Jenny L Seymour & Georgia Seitz (click for direct link)
It just so happened that this pattern was added to Craftree here, but without any image. When I tried to locate a version on Google & pinterest, I was unsuccessful. So I plunged right in to ‘solve the mystery’ of what & how it looks.
It is composed of 2 parts – the center that was designed by
the outer star spokes designed by Jenny.
I used a very old ball of Anchor Mercer Crochet in size 40. It has yellowed in some areas, so the star will need washing …
Round 1 measures 5cm from point to point. It contains a split ring & mock picot to climb out, & the outer chains have thrown rings. Hence 2 shuttles are required, wound CTM.
Update : This centre is beginning for Georgia Seitz's Round Robin for Beginners, here . The pattern is given, along with clear, detailed instructions and diagrams , for working it with traditional method, or with a couple of advanced techniques such as a split ring, ....
This center can easily work as a Snowflake !
Round 2 measures 10cm/4” from point to point. It can be done with single shuttle & ball, too.
There is slight ruffling on this round, but nothing that a little stretching, ironing, or blocking will not take care of. For the lead picture I only stretched it a bit with my fingers - nothing else.
The instructions are pretty clear & after a rough initial sketch of Round 1, to get a sense of what lay in store, it was easy going.
I applied FS/BS tatting for this piece. I did not need to post the shuttle at any time ! Thoroughly enjoyed the process, especially since it started out as a ‘blind date’ ;-P
So, make a wish upon the new rising star of 2015 :-)
Meanwhile, I am punctuating my crochet with Jane’s TIAS 2015, about which I will blog after a few more ‘Days’ have been revealed .
