A Life Inspired CAL Part 2 – Special Instructions duplication
Due to a layout error, the special instructions referring to Star Stitch for Part 2 of our crochet-along have been printed twice, but should differentiate between Beginning Star Stitch, and Star Stitch. See below for the designer’s updated instructions.
Star stitch is made over 2 rounds 1st is right side facing, 2nd is wrong side…but there is a beginning star stitch and the normal star stitch… this is how it goes….
[beginning star stitch] Join with a standing *htr in any ch-2 corner space, ch 1 to form “eye”, insert hook into eye and draw through a loop, repeat in the bottom of htr post, in ch-2 corner space, and in the next 2 sts.
You will now have 6 loops on your hook, yarn over and draw through all 6 loops.
Ch 1 to close the stitch and form the “eye” of the star.
(Insert hook in the “eye” of previous star st and pull up a loop, repeat in the last “spoke” of the star, in the same stitch of R10 that the spoke of the last star is in, and the next 2 sts, [6 loops on hook], yo and draw through all 6 loops, ch 1 to close)
Camellia Wrap Jumper, size clarification
We have written in the magazine that this jumper is shown in size L on Lanna, who wears a UK 8 usually, however we do not mean to imply that the L size is intended for UK size 8, and is more suited for UKL 12/14 – this jumper is a little too big for Lanna but shows the positive ease that could be achieved if you wanted to go up a size! A size 8 would be an S in this pattern. We apologise for any confusion caused – we recommend you measure a jumper you like to wear before you start crocheting any garment patterns and then work to this size.
