Grandma Twinkle Stars

starI just love these crochet stars, they are so pretty, and pretty quick and easy as well. They are also extremely versatile, in winter they look like snowflakes and they are stars any other time. They can be strung up as a garland, used as ornaments, or placed on gifts as a beautiful tag. This is the Grandma Twinkle from The Royal Sisters. Let me just say, there is a whole lot of talent over there, and these are just gorgeous. I was able to make 8 stars out of a 2.5 ounce ball of cotton yarn, and that is just the beginning. I’ve got lots of plans for these little beauties. So far they are all natural, but I see some brightly coloured stars in my future. Hope you enjoy making some, I sure am.

    I’d love to master crochet, it always looks so appealing and your star is super, very festive!

  14. Amy says:

    super cute. I just took out my knit-cro-sheen the other day to make a few little ornaments. This one looks like a great one to add to them. As always, thanks for the link.

    I’m grateful for many things, and I’m grateful for having many things to be grateful for! :o) And one of them is your photography. No seriously. Your photos always make me feel so good. Would love to know what camera and lens and aperture etc etc that you use because your colours are always so spot-on.

    On a different subject – looking forward to seeing what twinkly projects you’ll come up with.

    Thanks everybody, I just love these stars and have been turning them out like there is no tomorrow. I can’t really share what I am making with them as of yet, as they are gifts, so I don’t want to ruin the surprise.

    Anna, you are so sweet, thanks for the compliment. Would it help if I told you I really don’t know what I’m doing and it is a lot of trial and error. I use a Nikon D60 with the lens that came on it. I use a lot of presets and take lots of photos to get several that are good. I am discovering quickly that it is very difficult to take good shots of food and the lighting in our house is pretty bad, so I take as many shots outside as I can. Thanks for your encouragement, I really appreciate it.

  17. These are darling. What a garland with them all strung together. Hope you show us that too.

  18. Anna, Sydney says:

    It certainly looks like you have a clue. You must be a natural because it’s not just the light and colours but you’re very good at composition as well. Good work!

    Thank you so much Jennifer! I am the proud recipient of my very own crocheted star garland. It was part of the Holiday Traditions Exchange swap and I’m really so lucky because its so beautiful and fits well in our home. I love everything you added in the swap including your delicious recipe! x
