Last night we saw a shooting star, and hubby said “I made a wish, I expect to find a star fragment next to the bathtub in the morning”.
I looked online for a pattern, but none of them seemed quite right, because looking at the actually star in the game I counted 11 points I could see…
So I decided to make one up a simple pattern based on…
My comically tiny 12 sided DnD dice, possibly the least-used dice of the bunch!
So I needed 12 tiny cone shapes… and this is the pattern I used (though if I ever did it again, shich, spoiler alert, I will not) I might make them a little shorter and fatter?
- 6 sc in mr
- sc around (6)
- (sc, inc) around (9)
- sc around (9)
- 2 sc, inc) around (12)
- sc around (12)
- (3 sc, inc) around) (15)
- sc around (15)
Tie off, leaving long tail.
Now, the part I absolutely hate the most about any crochet project… sew them together. Start with one cone and sew 5 others to it, 3 stitches each.
If you didn’t want to wing it (there were a few times I thought it wasn’t going to go together quite right) you could label each point and make sure they were connecting the way the die does.
But it came together, and at one point I realized… why didn’t I just crochet a ball and sew the points to that?!?
It’s not hard to make, but it’s pretty fiddly, and kind of annoying. Still, it was worth it for a … joke… I suppose…
