Here is a simple starfish motif - a five-point starfish
STARFISH motif has always been available as a FREE PATTERN from my online stores RAVELRY and CRAFTSY
HOWEVER today I put together a short photo tutorial for you all
THIS PHOTO TUTORIAL IS ONLY AVAILABLE HERE
before you start here is HOW TO magic circle/loop/ring
Magic Adjustable Ring/Loop/Circle ALSO known as Magic Ring, Magic Loop or Magic Circle.
Place the yarn end in your left hand, take other end and loop around two fingers, cross over yarn being held. Hook the yarn through the circle, pull through and ch1, continue in single, half double, double or treble crochet as many times as required into the circle. Pull the yarn tail to close the circle.
Rnd 1: Magic loop, Ch1, 10sc in loop, join with sl st in ch1. (10sts)
Rnd 2: Ch1, *2sc in same st, 1sc in next st, rep from * around, join with sl st. (15sts)
Rnd 3: *Ch7, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next 2sts, dc in next 2sts, tr in next st, skip 2sts, sl st in 3rd st, rep from * to end. (5 star points)
Continue with same yarn or change to a CC and sc around the starfish.
Note: If you are going to join two starfish together wait and do the Sc edge when joining the two starfish.
SC EDGE for Starfish
Continuing from end of Rnd 3, along edge of starfish.
Rnd 4: Ch1, *Sc along edge of starfish arm in next 6 sts, 2sc in the ch of the point, sc in the next 5sts, skip next st (at the base between the arms), rep from * around, join with sl st.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Join two Starfish: Place one starfish over the other with wrong sides facing in, and with right side facing you follow the Sc Edge instructions and join together.
NOTE: If you wish to use single starfish, you can use the motif with or without the sc edge.
Use your starfish in the following ways:
· a motif;
· make it into a brooch by joining two starfish together and then attach a brooch backing;
· join two starfish, make a chain loop and hang off your key ring or bag;
· make loads starfish and join with a chain to make a “starfish”garland.
May you enjoy this little photo tutorial and make many starfish to decorate your world.
