Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years.
When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.

A rug? A baby blanket? An afghan or coverlet? You decide, but whichever you wish, this pattern is versatile! Use the suggested worsted weight wool yarn for a fabulous rug or a lighter cotton for a baby's crib.
This simple, yet detailed 19 page pattern includes:
--a printable 3 page written pattern
--complete materials list including yarn type, colors and quantities to make either a rug or blanket
--special stitches section to clarify the surface crochet process
--a photo-tutorial with over 50 pictures to walk you through making each star
--join-as-you-go instructions and pictures which allow you to make your motifs on the go and join them later
--color and placement diagrams
Appropriate for an ambitious beginner or intermediate crocheter who has experience reading a pattern in standard American terms and is familiar with front post stitches.
Remember if you make something awesome using my patterns, you have permission to sell the finished product. All I ask is that you give credit to me for the pattern, and if you sell them online, pretty please provide a link for the pattern to my shop (http://feltedbutton.etsy.com). Rewriting, reselling, distributing or copying the pattern itself is prohibited.
Keep in the "Button" loop:
Star motif (hexagon) = 4 inches (10cm) across from point to point. Adjust yarn weight and hook size to make smaller or bigger stars, if desired.
