In the old days, when electricity was still unknown, the stars were loved as symbols of life and energy.
Stars were often knitted into pillows and nightgowns, as protecting symbols against the darkness of the night and the unknown.
For the same reason, stars were also knitted into clothing used in wintertime - as winter was considered the night of the year.
