TO START ::
Make a magic loop, work the next rnd into the centre of the lp :: 1A rnd 1 :: ch3 and then make a 2dc bubble stitch (this counts as first bubble), now ch2. 3 *make a 3dc bubble + ch2* repeat between** till you have 6 bubbles with ch2 space between them. sl st into the first bubble made. now tighten the loop, pull the yarn tail and close the centre hole just a little. leave a small aesthetic hole like I show here at the above picture. 4 rnd 2 :: sl st into the first ch space, ch3 and make a 2dc bubble to complete your first bubble, ch3 and make 3dc bubble into the same ch space. *into the next ch space make: 3dc bubble, ch3, 3dc bubble* repeat between ** till you have 2 bobbles and ch3 space between them – in each ch2 space (6 times). sl st in the first bubble made. 5 rnd 3 :: *into the next ch space make : hdc, dc, tr, ch2, sl st into the first ch (picote made), tr, dc, hdc. now sc between next 2 bubbles* repeat between till you have 6 triangles made. sl st into the first hdc.  Fasten off and weave in tails. star Here is your star :: a granny chic star :: so beautiful and so easy to make :: crochet few more now :: star-pic They will make a pretty star garland :: a gift I made few times :: and it works in one colour as pretty as if you make it multicoloured garland :: starblocking I guess you want to block them now and give them a sharp shape right? :: so here is how I do that :: Put them on the Ironing board or any other flat surface :: spay a little water on them :: shape them with my hands just to help them understand they are stars now :: then I stick a sewing pin into each vertex :: and just lay them flat to dry over night or till they are totally dry :: starpost Are you already in love with this star? :: hope you enjoyed this tutorial :: and don’t say I haven’t told you :: this star is an addiction :: E N J O Y ::
