Notes

5Point Stars in a rainbow of colours for Christmas to go with the rainbow baubles l have for the Christmas tree
Garlands and tree decorations

6 Point Star Scarf in cream for a present
couldn’t think how to join the 5 point at least not in a straight line so l did a 6 point so joining is easy
Last photo did an extra round

Have seen them in 3colours or more but one colour less ends to deal with
I’ve done a huge selection of colours….my Christmas tree baubles are all bright mixed colours so l wanted to keep this theme the same this year
PATTERN:
