I’m so excited to share this pattern with you. The 12 Point Star Blanket is one of my most popular videos and I love seeing your blankets on social media. So, I thought it was time to bring the written version of the pattern to my blog. The beginner friendly blanket is a simple project just using basic stitches and it’s easy to size up or down depending on the size of blanket you want to make. This stellar make is out of this world.
If you’ve never worked from a written pattern before, but you’re familiar with my 12 Point Star video this is a great place to boost your knowledge and learn the structure and style of a written pattern.
MATERIALS & TOOLS NEEDED
This pattern is written in UK terms.
