finished eight beam star

fasten off, hide in loose ends, hang it on about 6 inches long thread

i used hemp yarn for this project and the hook size 2.7, but it can be made in different yarns so be inventive and experiment as much as you like

the creation may bend and swirl a little but if you wet it and then hold it with pins on the flat surface and even better if you use some sort of stiffener (starch for example) – it will stay in the desired shape 🙂

 

please remember to give a credit if you share this pattern as that is only one thing i am asking for
