Here is another great square using the yarn I mentioned previously from my Grandmother’s stash. It was a bit difficult to work with. I’m not sure if that’s because it’s a wool blend, or due to it’s age, but I often had a hard time catching the yarn with my hook.
I found the neat pattern for this stand-out star here. The effect is created with Front Post Double Crochet stitches. I modified the edging a little to stay within my 7 inches. My star doesn’t stand out quite as well and I think that is also due to the yarn I used and it’s weight and age.
