3rd December - Baroque Star

Hello.... welcome to day three, of this festive bit of yarny fun

So this is going to be the first of many festive stars in the Advent Calender
and for today's star I'm using Stylecraft special DK in my absolute favourite colour sherbet, do you have a favourite colour in the stylecraft range ? 

As always you'll find the knitaholics tutorial at the bottom of this post.

Now probably because of the yarn I used, this pretty star did need a bit of  blocking, for which I used the pin and waft steam iron technique.

Oh it's so pretty, I just couldn't resist adding a pearl to the centre

and then well I just got carried away with the decorating and glued some pretty half pearls (the ones you use for card making) to each point of the star.


A big thank you  goes to Elizzza for all the lovely tutorials that she has kindly shared on you tube, what a talented lady, go on you know you want to make one too.

Ho ho ho
