These were fun to crochet on the weekend. I had never tried a star shape before and found the directions very easy and straightforward. I stiffened them in sugar water and pinned them last night. I wanted to see how crocheted stars would look in Christmas colours before making a white one. These are about 4 inches and were crocheted with #10 crochet thread. I should try some finer thread and see what kind of results I get.
