Star Seams: a New Paper-Pieced Star, If You Dare One evening while perusing a catalogue, I found a shape that I wanted to try replicating in fabric: this mirror. I love the look of outlined stars (evidence: Lone Starburst), and immediately had visions of this new paper-pieced specimen. This new 12.5-inch (unfinished) block, which I call Star Seams, was born. I tried it out first with some lovely scraps... And then twice again with more limited, deliberate selections. The template looks quite neat on paper. I discovered that you have to be very careful with this template, and since I'm not the most careful sometimes, I had a few oopses. I don't love the process of paper-piecing. While I haven't been able to create the perfect exemplar yet (and may never...), here are the (free) templates I came up with if you're an intrepid crafter. Instructions: print 2 copies of the pattern to have 2 templates for each piece, A to F. Once each piece is complete, 1. join A -> B, C -> D, and E -> F, matching up outside edges and corners. 2. then AB -> CD,

Sols(tr)ikke Sirkel i kvadrat… Circle in a square... Her skal eg prøve å skrive ned ei oppskrift. Det finst sikkert mange forskjellige måtar å lage bestemorruter som dette, men her er min metode. Håper de gir beskjed dersom noko er vanskeleg å skjøne. (Heklespråket er lettare å lese enn å skrive ned… ) ETA: You can find an all English version of the pattern here. I will try to translate this to English. (Follow the link to pages explaining the stitches.) Start: Hekle 5 lm, samle til ein ring m 1 kjm i første lm. Start: make 5 ch, join with ss into a ring. 1. runde: 4 lm (=1 st,1 lm), 1 st + 1 lm 11 g. 1st round: 4ch (=1dc,1ch), 1dc + 1ch 11 times. 2. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 stav), 1 st, 1 lm, *2 st, 1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. 2nd round: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 1dc, 1ch, *2dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. 3. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 st)+ 2 st i lmb, 1 lm, *3 st,1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. Eg likar samlebandsmetoden, så eg heklar opp ein haug med sirklar før eg tar siste runda.

Daisy Puffagon Tutorial Any yarn you wish to use. I’d recommend using one hook size down from the recommend hook size for your yarn. This pattern is written in UK terms. American terms are given below in bold. WRITTEN PATTERN: Abbreviated instructions can be found at the end of the tutorial. I'm quite pleased with how 'seamless' I managed to make these look. I like to start of these little puffs with a magic loop. So, assuming we've now all got a magic loop, let's begin. First of all, make 1 chain and then make 6 double crochets (dc) into the loop. Once that's done we need to close up the circle. So take the waste end of the yarn (not the one still attached to your yarn ball) and pull it up until the stitches form a circle. It should look like this (left pic). Cut your yarn and using your hook, pull the end of the yarn until the end comes through the stitch. Now we're going to just pull the end of the yarn through that first dc of the round. So now it should look like this. Now make 1 chain. Then make 1 more chain.
