StarChic


Model on the left is size #20, on the right is size #80

This simple star design was inspired by the ageless Hens-and-Chicks patterns that we see often.
Very easy and quick to make.  Unfortunately, I did not measure the amount of thread required.

This is the pattern diagram

  3. WONDERFUL TRIBUTE to the ageless Hens and Chicks! How clever of you to create a star shape, and a very pretty one at that! Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing this pattern! I have a feeling I'll be tatting a lot of these!

  6. I'm writing again after tatting this wonderful star and thank you again so much for the pattern. It works up very fast! Because of familiariaty with the 'usual' hens and chicks pattern, it only too me a few seconds to memorize your knot counts, and right away I realized you made the normally straight edge curve by having the smaller-than-usual 'chicks' rings connect at the 'top', minus the center picots. Of course, it's logical - but you're possibly the first person to do this! Very clever! And the star 'points' are just the right size. Even though I didn't 'need' to print out the pattern and diagram, I always admire how well you draw your patterns. This star has many possibiities!

  7. Thank you all.
    Yes Kathy, the pattern is very easy to follow because of the familiarity with the hens-and-chicks. I just took a different look at it and the result is the star.

  9. That's a brilliant beginners pattern, I usually teach that as an edging but it will be a welcome change to make it a star. Thanks a million for your great idea.

  10. Thank you. And also should ring 1 in the written instructions be:
    R1 (3-2-3), rw?

    having it as 3-2-2 doesn't seem to match your visual pattern? (I'm new to this so I may be mistaken)

  13. Tara, you are right about the stitch count of Ring 1, it should be R!(3-2-3).
    I have made the change in the pdf file for download.

  16. Lovely pattern and just perfect as a decoration or gift tag. Would love your permission to share with the lacemaking group I am a member of as I am running a skills session in November this year.

    I have done a version in red, with green bugle beads on the bare threads as a decoration/gift tag.

    Regards, Wendy

    1. MomDea, this pattern requires a shuttle only, there is no all thread. You can start at any ring but I find it easier to begin with one of the small rings.
