wrapped in a star

 Again, I was blown away at how an imaginative tatter can apply my pattern to something I had not imagined. And this motivates me even more to share all I can. 

Daniela Bogacka wrapped the large MatheMagical Star around a tree ornament/bauble. So simple, yet so effective! And she readily agreed to share it with my readers who are not on facebook or instagram..
 
This pattern was first shared here (along with pdf), in various sizes. And the simple equation/ratio is such that one can increase it to any size one wants! Thus a Huge advantage is that you simply choose the star size according to the size of the marble, bauble, etc. that you want to decorate.

UPDATE: Check out how Vera has inverted the star to cover the bauble here -
 https://veragondolatai.blogspot.com/2021/01/frivolitas-gombre.html! This gives me another idea - how about attaching teardrops at each tip to hold down the arms instead of weaving thread. It would also add some sparkle.

I am taking the liberty of sharing a couple of other renditions that I was tagged in recently. Like I said earlier, wish I could share all that I come across...But if you send me a pic of your model or a link to your blog, I would love to post it in my blog. 

This one is by Donatella Rizzo - the colourway reminds me of a romantic night sky! Add a few sparkly beads or glitter and what an astral sight we have!

Several weeks back Anna Tedesco worked the pattern in metallic threads. Beautiful, isn't it? 

You can find these talented tatters on Facebook and Instagram.

The MatheMagical 'franchise' of patterns continues to amaze me - the simple equation/ratio led to so many patterns - stars, tree, bells, and I'm hoping snowflake, ice drop, and 2D/3D angel in the future. I think the 3D bell needs more work before I start with the angel. And beads for decoration?!

Scroll down to 25 Snowflake Project 2019 for links to all patterns. or check out the Google Docs file. I intend to upload more of the remaining patterns through the year. Hopefully ;-D  

Many thanks to All the lovely tatters who have braved my patterns and return for more 😉 Please keep an eye out for a few more bravehearts in the coming weeks!
