Star in Bloom

I used a G hook and ww yarn

This is a very rough pattern, as I didn't write it down as I went.... so please let me know if you have any questions, It's like working a granny square with an extra corner!

Rnd 1, ch5 sl st to form circle, join, ch3, 2dc in circle, * ch2, 3dc, repeat 3 more times, sl st to top of ch 3. (5 ch2 spaces)
Rnd 2) sl st in next st and ch2 sp, ch3, 2dc, ch2,3dc in smae space, * ch1, 3dc,ch2 3dc in next sp, ch1, repeat around.
Rnd 3-5) sl st in next st and next ch2 sp, ch2, 2dc, ch2, 3dc in same sp, *ch1, 3dc in next sp, ch1, 3dc, ch2, 3dc in next sp, repeat around... rows 4 and 5 will increase one more time each in between corners

Using contrasting color, with wrong sides facing, attach yarn in ch two space with sc, sc evenly around through both "stars", along three sides, sc in ch 2 sp... here I also went around the opening with sc. Fasten off.

Leaf... I made two:
ch8, sl in first ch, sc in next 2ch, hdc in next ch, 2dc in next ch, 3sc in last ch, now working on opposite side, dc in next 2sts, hdc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, sl to last fasten off and attache to desired spot on star
For handle, ch 2, 6sc in second ch, do not join, continue sc around for about 8-9 inches. fasten off and attatch to star.


  1. How cute is that? I'm thinking my daughter would love something like that for her birthday coming up! Better get started :)

  2. This will be perfect child gift. I think I may line it too.

  3. I have been thinking about this problem. I don't know if I should be how to deal with these problems. Really hope you can help me out.
