Twinkle Twinkle

Here is the pattern for this simple little star if you'd like to make it.  It's quick to tat, perfect for last minute presents or to decorate a card.  It does involve self-closing mock rings though!  I like to use SCMRs because they produce a sharper angle between two chains (so better for stars).  If I had used a thrown ring at the tip of the chains instead, the shape below would be more rounded and look more like a flower than a star.




And here is the second motif with six sides.  I'm pleased with it.  Yes, it is reminiscent of Flocon d'Or from last year, as Margaret pointed out, but it's also different enough to be a separate pattern of its own.



Best wishes,
Frivole
