Christmas Star Ornament

Twelve Days Of Christmas Ornaments.
Day Ten: Christmas Star Ornament.

Who doesn't love homemade christmas  crafts? You may remember the handmade ornaments that filled your grandparents' tree. You may also have a few treasured ornaments that you made in elementary school. You probably enjoy reminiscing as you pull out the ornaments each year and hang them on the tree. It's never too late to make new ornaments, and here is a star to add to your collection.

This is a pretty star knitted in simple lace. Make as a tree decoration, or hang in front of windows to show the world your knitting skills.
4mm needles
Approx 10g of Double Knitting Weight Yarn
To Make:
Cast on 10 sts and K 1 row.
2nd row: Sl1, Inc1 (knit into front and back of the stitch), *yf, K2tog; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2tog.
3rd row: K to end.
Rep the 2nd and 3rd rows twice more.
Cast off.
Repeat 4 more times
Arrange all 5 pieces in star shape and sew together.
Make hanging loop and sew to one of the star points.

This star is so pretty and knits up so quick, done in barely an hour!

Hang em' everywhere...
