Just a quick post today with a bit of info regarding the new blanket pattern I am making. It seems a few of you lovely readers liked the little flowery starry pattern just like I did!
The pattern came from a crochet book I have called 'Baby Crochet - easy projects volume 2 in 4ply' it is produced by Cleckheaton. They call it a 'loop cluster' stitch, I am not so keen on reproducing the pattern here as there may be copyright issues, but I have had a look around Googleland and found a tutorial and pattern that is the same! This stitch is also called Star Stitch
and there is a pattern here at Crochet Spot with instructions that seem nice and clear.
I am sure you could do this in any weight yarn too.
So I hope this helps all you ladies!
I really like how this stitch forms nice clear rows, and it has a bit of a vintage feel to it, I am sure it has been around for a long time! I am making a little range of retro/vintage inspired cot blankets, and it is giving me just the look I was after!
Have a great hooky day!
