Valley Yarns 509 Knit Stars (Free)
Twinkle, twinkle, little knit stars, in every color of Northampton Sport! These pretty little stars are made in two simple pieces, first in the round*, then in rows, and sewn together. The ends, secured and buried within, make just the right amount of stuffing. String them into holiday garlands, tree trimmings, or a soft mobile for a baby’s room.
* This pattern has now been updated to include alternate instructions for working the stars entirely in rows.
