Double Star

Please don’t distribute the pattern itself, but feel welcome to share the link to the pattern as you like.

Materials:
1,5 mm hook,
Solberg Garn 12/4 Mercerisert or size 10 crochet yarn

Size: approximately 12,5 cm from point to point.

Abbreviations (US terms):
ch = chain,
sl st = slip stitch,
dc = double crochet,
tr = treble crochet,
st = stich,
rnd = round.

Notice, do ch 3 instead of dc and ch 4 instead of tr at the beginning of each row.

Instructions:
Make a magic circle (ring).

Round 1: *dc, ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next ch, ch 3*, repeat between * * 5 times more, sl st in 3rd ch of starting ch 3 (total 6 arms). Pull magic circle tight.

Round 2: *tr in next dc, ch 9, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 4 ch, ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3 ch, ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 2 ch, ch 10, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3 ch, ch 4, sl st in the 1st ch of ch 10 you made, ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 2 ch, sl st in next ch (between 3 sl st tip and 4 sl st tip), ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3 ch, sl st in next ch (between 4 sl st tip and 5 sl st tip), ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 4 ch, sl st in next 2 ch (below 5 sl st tips) and in the tr (big arm made), ch 10, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3 ch, ch 5*, repeat between * * 5 times more, sl st in 4th ch of starting ch 4 (total 6 big arms and 6 small tips). Bind off and weave in ends.

Stiff and block your snowflake, I used sugar water (50/50 sugar and boiling water). I think templates are necessary so your snowflake will be straight and be sure you use stainless steel pins.

Thank you. This is so cute. Looks like little pine trees at the points.
