Star Power

Here’s what I’ve been crocheting for baby boy – a star afghan. I’m in love with this pattern! It’s fairly simple and goes by rather quickly. You can stop whenever you want, all depending on your desired size.

Remember, you can stop at any time. If you continue, you will follow this from here on out.

Chain 3. DC in each stitch before you reach the point. (3DC, Ch 3, 3DC) in point. Continue with DC’s in each stitch, remembering to skip over the original SC space.

This pattern is so versatile. Small stars would be great for coasters or pot holders. I’m currently in the works making more garland for my Christmas tree 🙂

Enjoy!
