So I had a request for a pattern of mine! Yay me! Anyone remember this?
It's really easy! Here we go:
This particular scarf has 18 stars in it. I used Red Heart Yarn(the person I made it for requested acrylic yarn), but I'm sure you can use any weight, just use an appropriate sized hook(check the yarn label) and adjust the amount of stars to make the scarf as long or short as you'd like.
For the star...
~ch 5, join with ss to first chain to form a ring.
~ch 3(counts as first dc) 2 dc in ring, chain 5, *3 dc in ring, chain five,* repeat from * to * three times more. ss into 3rd chain of beginning 3 chains. You should have five five chain spaces.
~ch 1. Sc in same ch. Skip next st, sc in next dc. [ 5 sc, ch 2, 5 sc ]in chain 5 sp. *sc in next dc, sk next dc, sc in next dc. [5 sc, ch 2, 5 sc] in chain 5 sp.* Repeat from * to * three more times. Join to first sc with ss. Finish off.
Now make 17 more! All one color, several different colors, have fun with it!
Let's join them! And the best part... no sewing!
~Lay the stars out in the order you want them to be in for the scarf. This is tricky to describe so bear with me... When laying them out place the stars so that two of the tips are touching. Because of the five sides they will not lay straight. The best way I found to fix this is to alternate which way they lay. Refer to the finished pattern picture for clarification.
~Now pick up one of the end stars and join your edging yarn to one of the star tips. sc down the side of star, putting 1 sc in each sc, skipping the two middle sc's in between points and putting 3 sc in the ch2 space at the tip of each point. Gosh I hope that makes sense. For the end star you will crochet around the four of the five sides(one side is the v made in between points).
~Pick up the next star and while holding it up to the first start that you've already edged, sc along one side.
~Pick up the next star and while holding it up to the second star, sc along one side and then half of the next side(see picture for clarification).
~Continue in this manner until all of the stars have been attached. For the last star, sc around four sides like you did for the first one. Then just go back up the other sides of the stars. If you sc'ed along just one side when you went down, then you'll sc along and and a half sides going back up. Once you've gone all the way around the scarf, simply join with a ss to the first sc, tie off and weave in the ends.
