New week New pattern:) since my mom was looking for a star pattern I thought this pattern would be perfect:) This one looks fun and I love that it gives 3 variations…..now I don’t have a B hook but when I or my mom try it we will try a bigger hook, and I’m pretty sure we don’t have metallic yarn…I am thinking about tryong this with embroidery thread:) might be fun to make em tiny:)
