This is a simple star motif which can be made in any weight yarn with the appropriate sized needles (go up one or two sizes from the suggested needle size). Use it as a coaster, or as an applique etc…

Made from the centre-out on DPNs or circular needles, the star is then finished by adding five individual points which are worked flat. In order to see the pattern properly, a little blocking is needed as this will open out the increases and decreases.
