So what is a Static Star? I think most crocheters would be familiar with the good old round ripple or as it is sometimes called Star blanket. My new design takes that classic shape and pops in a twist in the form of a ‘static panel’. In the dip of each point is a panel of pattern: diamonds, cables, sun rays… and more to come! Static Stars are fun, textured and dynamic designs. They turn the ordinary Star blanket into something out of this world

Desert Rose is the third of 3 individual releases in the Static Star Series. You can buy all 3 in the ebook.

The design:

Desert Rose is textured centre out design featuring fpdc diamonds. It is an ongoing expandable pattern created by repeating a set of 6 rounds after the centre section is completed. This means you can make anything from a place mat to a bed spread depending on how many times you repeat the design. Desert Rose is an easy level pattern that even a confident beginner would be able to complete.

Materials needed:
Desert Rose was designed to make a centre out project as large as you like using any weight of yarn. Sample use 8ply Bendigo Woollen Mill Cotton and Hobbii Twirl.
It is an expandable design so meterage will vary depending on desired size and yarn I recommend 1000m+ for baby blanket of approx 1m.
Stitch markers.
Wool/darning needle.

Recommended Hook size:
3-3.5 mm for 4ply
3.5-4 mm for 8ply
4-4.5mm for 10ply
6-6.5 mm for 12 ply.
Or hook appropriate for your
chosen yarn weigh weight
