Damn stars ....

I, too, have been crocheting the celestine 12-point star. The first one was a complete disaster and ended up as a childrens' dragon hat. The 2nd one at least looked like it was supposed to ... sort of:


But me being a Virgo and not liking anything less than perfect - the star is very wobbly to say the least - I had to change the pattern. The yellow star was crocheted as the pattern suggested, from the wide area to the pointy bit, with the next point directly crocheted onto it. And not in continous rounds, which of course gives each point a sort of 'seam'. So I thought, this must be possible in Amigurumi! And it is:


And doesn't it look a lot neater? Unfortunately I forgot to add bells to it inside, so I will have to crochet another one for my 3 1/2 month old granddaughter :-) But I do think these stars with bells or rattles make rather nice kids toys. Don't you??

very different indeed - i prefer the stumpier ones as they are more katamari! but then pointy ones are really really nice too xxx
