'Her Star Is Born' Garland

I really enjoyed making the Floral Garland, the simple repeats and seeing it grow very quickly, it was super relaxing and very therapeutic for me!  Because I enjoyed it so much, for this design I decided I wanted to make another garland but wanted it to be more Christmassy (not really a word I know!) so I would be able to pop it onto my Christmas tree.  

That is really how Her Star is Born Garland came about!

 

 

I used a 3.5mm Clover Amour Hook.

The yarn I use for this pattern is Scheepjes Twinkle in colour way 938.

Whilst this yarn is not soft (due to the Lurex fibres) it is 75% cotton and is lovely and sparkly, perfect for stars!

 

I use UK terms throughout.

 

  • Chain 25 and slip stitch into the fifth chain from the hook.

 

 

  • At this stage your remaining 20 chains should be on the left hand side of your work if you are right handed like me) like in the photo below.

 

  • Move the remaining 20 chains to the right hand side of your work (if you are right handed), like in the photo below.

  • Chain 2 (counts as your first half treble).  Half Treble 14 into the ring, slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain 2.

 

 

  • Chain 5.  1 double crochet into the second chain from the hook, 1 half treble crochet into the next chain, 1 treble into the next chain, 1 double treble into the last chain.

     

     

     

     

     

    • Skip one stitch and slip stitch into the next chain.

    • Slip stitch into the next stitch.  Chain 5.  1 double crochet into the second chain from the hook, 1 half treble crochet into the next chain, 1 treble into the next chain, 1 double treble into the last chain.
    • Skip one stitch and slip stitch into the next chain.

     

    • Slip stitch into the next stitch.  Chain 5.  1 double crochet into the second chain from the hook, 1 half treble crochet into the next chain, 1 treble into the next chain, 1 double treble into the last chain.
    • Skip one stitch and slip stitch into the next chain.
    • Slip stitch into the next stitch.  Chain 5.  1 double crochet into the second chain from the hook, 1 half treble crochet into the next chain, 1 treble into the next chain, 1 double treble into the last chain.
    • Skip one stitch and slip stitch into the next chain.
    • Slip stitch into the next stitch.  Chain 5.  1 double crochet into the second chain from the hook, 1 half treble crochet into the next chain, 1 treble into the next chain, 1 double treble into the last chain.
    • Skip one stitch and slip stitch into the next chain.
    • You have now created your 5 star points.  

     

     

    Once you have finished your 5th star point, chain 25 and you are ready to start another star!  Continue on until you reach the desired length then fasten off!

    While I think the way the tips of the stars curl are very sweet, I do think Her Star is Born Garland would benefit from blocking.  This yarn has more of a tendency to curl because of the lurex.  It is entirely up to you whether you choose to block or not!
