PATTERN DETAILS

I began working this ornament based on the pattern: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/home-decor/free-small-5-pointed-star-ornament/90726 However, the turns were too difficult to do in wire, so I rewrote that pattern. You can also use 100% cotton yarn with this pattern, simply go down 2 or 3 sizes with the needles. ___________ MATERIALS Artistic copper wire, 30 gage (or any other type / color wire you would like) 5 Double pointed needles, size 6 (4.0 mm), or any size needed to obtain gauge Crochet hook Materials can be swapped as long as gauge is met. Finished size: Approx. width = 3 inches (6.4 cm) X height = 3 inches (6.4 cm) Gauge: Approx. 18 sts and 29 rows = 4 inches (10.2 cm) ABBREVIATIONS BO-bind off CO-cast on dec-decrease; decreased dpn(s)-double pointed needle(s) k-knit ktog-knit together k2tog-knit 2 stitches together m-make st rep-repeat rnd(s)-round(s) skp-slip one, knit one, pass slip stitch over st(s)-stitch(es) ytb-yarn to back ytf-yarn to front NOTES For this pattern I used a knit cast-on. After making the first stitch with a slipknot, I used both the tail and the regular wire to knit my stitches doubled. This also helps hide the tail in the very loose and open wire knitting. Increases: M (make stitch) is used consistently and means to knit into the lower row. Binding Off uses a variation of a standard 3-needle bind off. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Wire knitting Increase & Decrease Stitches GAUGE 18 stitches and 29 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approx. width = 3 inches (6.4 cm) X height = 3 inches (6.4 cm) SUGGESTED YARN 13 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN none COLORWAY any
