In the dark middle ages, when electricity was still unknown, the stars were loved as symbols of life and energy.
8-leaf stars were often knitted into pillows and nightgowns as protecting symbols against the darkness of the night.
For the same reason, stars were also knitted into mittens used in wintertime, as winter was considered the night of the year, and the night represented the dark and the unknown.
