A Granny star or Snowflake

Sorry for being absent for so long...book 2 is finished just the proof reading to do still doing design work but some free time to play before Christmas.
Been trying to make the blogs easier to use so lots of old patterns are listed on the right hand side and i will do my best to share a new pattern or two from now on.
The first is.....
US Terms as always on my blogs
It's late now to take pictures of how too so I will add them in the morning
but this is the Snowflake Mat

Granny Snowflake Mat Pattern

Chunky or two strands of DK worked as one, 6mm hook.

A loose finger wrap of 6 wraps
Round1: 12dc into circle
Round 2: 2dc, ch1, 2dc, ch1, miss a st,  repeat 5 more times, sl st to complete. ( 12 x 2dc)
Round 3: 2dc ch3, 2dc in each corner sp, 3dc in each side sp, sl st to complete.
Round 4: 2dc, ch3, 2dc in ch3 sp, 2dc in in next 2sps, repeat 5 more times sl st to complete. (6 sides)
Round 5: 3dc, ch3,3dc in ch3 sp, 2dc in next 3sps, repeat for all sides, sl st to complete.
Round 6: repeat round 4 with 4 side sps.
Round 7: start in a corner sp, ch5, sl st into point, ch6, sl st into point, ch5, sl st into point, sc into next 6 sts, miss 2 sts, sc into next 6 sts, repeat for all sides, sls t to complete.
Makes a mat approximately 12" (30.5cm) from point to point

Update...decided no pictures needed so simple to follow

Great for decorations, coasters or joined together in a wrap or scarf

 Great buy from The Works....with teeny tiny sequine yarn £1 a ball and i'm sure it will make 6 stars 6" (15.25cms) point to point
