How I Wonder in Spring

Project info
How I Wonder by Polly Plum
Afghan block
Hooks & yarn
4.0 mm (G)

For my Whispers of Spring Sampler.
Using the Canada Goose block border.

I had to leave off a couple of rounds to get it to the size to match my other blocks for this sampler afghan.

The five-pointed star is fairly unusual in crochet afghan blocks, since even numbers (four, six, eight) are easier to work into a square. The odd-numbered points are distinctive.

You need to pay very close attention to the pattern in round 10, but apart from that, most of it was fairly intuitive-- not one of those where every single round has a high level of difficulty.

The star stitch frame is a nice touch. Going through the mini tutorial, I felt that it might take a while to get the hang of it, but it actually isn’t that complicated. There’s a definite rhythm to it, which makes it easier to memorize.

I thought I might need to go up a hook size on the star stitch, because at first it tended to work tighter than the rest of the block, but in the end, it stretched and evened out. If it’s too tight the next time I make this block, I’ll definitely consider swapping hooks just for the star stitch portion.

This was fun to crochet, and I like my results! :)
