Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, we’ve already opened our presents like the half-German family we are. The boys are in bed and I thought I’d share a little project with you that I did for the Greenwich Steiner School Winter Fair. I made six of them and they were all sold within the first hour!
I used a lovely DROPS Design Extra pattern that was released especially for Christmas.
I knitted them in the round, like a sock, and then added a polysterene ball in the middle once I’d decreased again and had a big enough hole left to insert them.
I then crochet the string with the leftover yarn I had from knitting and sewed up at the top and the bottom quite a few times to really tighten up the cables into the beautiful looking star that you can see.
The yarn I used was leftovers of DROPS Muskat in various colours.
I am really pleased that these sold so quickly at the Winter Fair and I wish I’d had the time to make some more.
Here you can see them all together, don’t they look great? I should make some for our tree in the future!
