This beautiful lacy star will look perfectly at home as a suncatcher in your window or as an ornament on your Christmas tree. 2 sizes are included in the pattern. The small star is about 4 inches tall and 3 inches wide. The large star is just over 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide. There is a great variety of Metallic Size 10 crochet threads, which would be a great choice to use for this ornament. 'Plain' crochet thread dressed up with some glitter would be a great finishing touch. Growing up in Bethlehem, PA, USA, one is surrounded by star images everywhere in this 'Christmas City'. This is my second design for this lovely 8 pointed star, expressing the heritage of my home town and the enduring light of my Savior. This Ray of Hope design is also in honor of a close friend and her sisters who are battling together through the most difficult of health situations with grace, faith, and hope. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This pattern is also featured in the Christmas Issue of Too Yarn Cute Crochet Magazine, released 10/31/13.

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
