It can be knit in any weight of yarn you like, but I’d advise to go for yarn with some give (like wool for instance rather than cotton), and at a fairly tight gauge for best effect.
It’s a bit fiddly to start with as you only start with a few stitches, but it’s entirely knit in the round with no seaming.
There are a few patterns for knitted stars out there, but when I started designing mine I had a clear idea of what I wanted it to look like: I wanted the stitches to fan out of the centre of the star, and I wanted them to wind their way up the tip of the points in a wavy line. And since I didn’t find anything which satisfied my demands I set out to make my own.
I have to say I’m quite happy with the result, so I decided to write up the pattern, my first one, and to share it!
I hope you like it too, and I’m looking forward to seeing what to see how it turns out for you!
