Stars "in" Stripes Coverlet

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Stars in Stripes Coverlet Link to website or photo www.crochetbykathy.com/Thread1.html What are you most proud of? I'm happy with the way the stripes of large stars and stripes of small stars matched up to create this fun design. The stripes are also crocheted together so there is no need for sewing. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy pattern, but follow the instructions closely when joining the stripes to make sure the stars line up correctly. Two sizes are included: - Throw: 43" wide x 53-1/2" long - Twin Coverlet: 62-1/2" wide x 86" long This pattern is available for $4.00 and is written in U.S. terms.

What you will need

  • Crochet cotton
  • size 10
  • in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - 10 for throw
  • 23 for coverlet; and a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook.

lauralee64134 asked:
Could additional rows be added on the sides and on the foot to fit a full (double) size bed? Any clue of how much more yarn that would take? I have a grand-daughter going off to college, and this would be great for her to take. Thank you and God bless.
crochetbykathy answered:
This can easily be adjusted to your own size. It is done in bedspread cotton crochet thread. Each 350 yd. ball of thread will make either 18 small star squares or 7 large star squares. The large stars measure 6" high x 6" wide and there is a 1/2" between each square, with an additional 1" border on the top and bottom. The small stars are 3-3/4" wide. There is only a narrow border on each side. The stripes are crocheted together with single crochet, so you don't need to calculate extra for connecting the stripes.

Really NICE! I plan to use size 3 thread, or perhaps even yarn and upsize this for a king size bed!
