try this (http://heidisknittingroom.ourfamily.com/TexturedStarChart.htm) or this (http://fuzzynoodleknits.typepad.com/photos/free_patterns/stars.html) or maybe this funky one (http://www.freepatterns.com/fp_pdfs/Other/Knitting/christmasstarsafghan.pdf) or this lacy one (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/knidoustadoi.html)

Actually.. that's not what I'm looking for :blush:


For some reason the emoticon came up.. -sigh-

its something like a star pattern..... like you knit and purl, something like a double knitting pattern. But.. I can't find one. :(

You mean like a sky full of stars? this one (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/starry_night/starry_night.html) is actually entitled "Starry Night" scarf bc of the yarn used

the star chart is what I need. sorta like this one (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/starry_night/starry_night.html) that Hildegard_von_Knittin posted... but a five pointed star.... would I be better off making my own pattern??

You can create your graph paper with this generator (http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/matrix/e-index.html) or this one (http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/KnittersGraph.html) BUT I prefer to use this one (http://www.sweaterscapes.com/grafpap-134.htm) for making up something & u don't require a specific gauge. Knitting graph paper is different from regular graph paper bc of the shape of each st is more of a rectangle than a square like you have in graph paper. So u can print the graph paper & play around with a pattern ;)

I made a couple star cloths, as well as the dolphin, found red and did the apples finally, basketweave, chevron, kitty cat, pear, and so on. The dishcloth pattern site is great and from that I think I can make my own palm tree pattern and some other ideas I have.

I got the finished product. It didn't take me long :D

people can feel free to use the pattern if they want. It wasn't hard.

I added five more rows to the top to make it even with the bottom though.

Jenelle,

I was wondering if you ever figured out how to make the moon... I am thinking about making an afghan with stars and moons... :??

Thanks!!
