The larger cosy was my entry in the crochet section of our Needlework guild annual competition in May. The theme was stars. The smaller cosy was a practice for the bigger one.

This is not done in proper Polish Star stitch.  I changed the way of doing it to make it easier (for me) but it still uses the same basic technique of weaving the loops to achieve the same star effect.

For anyone who wants to try this I have attached a pdf pattern. I had to include a lot of pictures in order to show the method of weaving the loops.  It is a bit complicated until you get the hang of it so I hope you can follow my instructions.  Other people have posted videos of the weaving of the loops on the web which may be easier to understand.

Also, although I took pictures as I went along - mainly for my own records - I didn't write down the method until afterwards so I hope there are not too many glaring errors.

Thanks for the pattern! That looks so cool, I might just need to try out that stitch! Cheesy

That is so cool looking! Thanks for sharing your instructions, too! It looks like it will stitch up fairly quickly, with a bit of concentration afterwards for the weaving of the loops. I'd love to try it with a cool variegated yarn against a solid (black maybe)? I'm not normally a fan of variegateds, but I think it would look neat with this pattern!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
