One of the things I like most about designing with crochet, is that I can let my imagination run wild.

I am often amazed where the ideas come from, whether it is the colours I use or the combination of stitches, it all seems to magically blend together.

♥ With modern crochet, we are not limited with colour, shape, or stitches.
And so, here is Star of Wonder, an 8-sided blanket!
Why 8 sides? Well why not :)
♥ It lays beautifully on a bed, with four of the sides cutting across the corners of the bed.

Eight sided stars have been used throughout history, by many different cultures.
To signify great celestial events, the wheel of the year and celebrated festivals.
It can symbolise bringing order to chaos, it is also known as the symbol of creation, often depicted as a sun, the giver of life.
