How do you make the little hanging loop? Thanks


Have had a go and find these very addicitive! Have featured you and these stars on my blog today, pop over and see! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/rain-rain-go-away-embroidery-for-soul.html


I can't remember if I posted my comment already or not. Sometimes my Ipad doesnt' cooperate. Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I am a beginner at crochet, but I used your snowflake pattern and made several already! I had to pull the first one out several times before I got it right, but from then on it was smooth sailing. I ran out of white yarn, so tried making a blue one. I definitely want more white yarn. lol Thank you for this pattern!


Lucy you are so clever with your patterns. These stars look lovely. I've been making some from another pattern, but I will try these. In the past I've enjoyed your ripple pattern and your hexagon pattern too.
Happy Christmas.


I followed your tutorial to make a larger star. I am a beginner at crochet, so had to start over several times, but I finally mastered it. Now I need to shape them, thank you for the great tutorial!


Coucou Lucy,
I've just done à Garland with your Little Lacy Stars here: http://lesdoikifument.canalblog.com/
I love this star :)
Thanks a lot for the tuto


They are so sweet.


Cute and Love the tree!
I made these (from a different pattern) and every year I like to pin them to my dining room curtains. Mine were in pinks, whites, and blues so I could keep them up until spring.
One less Christmas-ie thing to have to put away before the new year, the better!


I just came over via a link from Jennifer Edwards blog Drawn2Life.wordpress.com. Love your colorful stars. I like them hanging from the little tree. I'm going to have to start making some of these. I'm too late for this year but next year people are going to be getting crocheted stars from me!


For some reason this Christmas I seem to be treading water and loosing all sense of the real Christmas spirit. However, a quick pop into your world and life feels so much better, thank you. So for all you have given this year, not only the crochet loveliness, may I wish you and your lovely family much joy and peace this Christmastide.

These are so pretty and a great way to liven up some twigs. My Christmas tree is a twig arrangements this year (no Christmas trees in the Gambia!), so I might have a go at making a few of these instead of fairy lights. Thank you for sharing.


How do u do the loop at the top? I've done the star but am struggling!!! They are lovely! Than
Thanks for sharing!

This has been such a timely post for me. I bought some cream cotton last week as I wanted to make a garland of small stars for my Christmas tree. I tried various patterns,but all the stars I made were just too big for my little tree .
I then made a dozen from your pattern, have just given them a spray of starch and chained them together and they are now garlanding my tree and look just lovely.
Thankyou Lucy:)
Wishing you a happy winter solstice...almost there...and a Bonne Noel from the Charente,SW France xxxxxxx


Thank you, thank you , thank you. You're a GEM.
Blessings Gail


Thank you for sharing the pattern! The stars are lovely and I made five of them yesterday evening as a gift for a friend.


Made one just now - thank you dear Lucy for showing us how - such a fab pattern.

These are not ordinary stars-this particular six point star is known as the "star of David" or "The David shield" (in hebrew "Magen David") and is a known jewish simbol. I find it particularly nice that you choose to decorate with it. You can read about it herehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_David


These lacy stars are delightfully jolly, Lucy. Thank you so much for the "recipe." I might even find some time to make some...perhaps by Boxing Day!



Thank you so much! I made some granny stars,inspired by your beautiful advent garland,and now I can make some small stars, yeeees!


I love your coffee-pot-christmas-tiny-tree!!!Thank you so much for the Lacy Star pattern, you are wonderful...

Elisabeth Firsching

MERRY XMAS to you and your family
