Quite often my ideas just do not work out the way they were planned - usually they are then frogged and started again in a slightly different manner - or abandoned completely :) But just once in a blue moon something - even though it did not go to plan - turns out to look just lovely.

And that’s what happened with this piece. I had planned to knit a potholder with a star with 6 points … or 8 points at most. But due to an error, I ended up with slimmer points than planned. Plus the points did not look as I had planned. However, I continued knitting it, and I grew to like it. So it was finished and here is the pattern for it.

As with many of my small potholders it is started with a provisional cast-on, constructed with short rows and intarsia and finished by grafting in garter stitch.

The piece can be used as a potholder, washcloth or coaster.
