Dec your projects with flecks of sparkle!
Add a touch of personalization to your Hanukkah table this year. Try something new and work these up with a splash of sparkle and dazzle. One ball of yarn will make approx. 3 stars. I’ve used Lion Brand Sparkle Yarn for this project. This cheerful blend of 56% acrylic and 44% polyester has small teardrop shaped discs of iridescent sparkle throughout the entire skein adding glitz and dimension to the yarn. These stars could also double as ornaments or string them together to make a garland. Endless options.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
Each star is worked up in rounds.
Each ornament is approx. 5in wide & tall. Change the gauge of the yarn to change the size of your ornament!
