BLOCK #14: Starfire by Melinda Miller
(Click the name of the pattern above to go to the Ravelry link for this pattern)
Above is the original, made with 4 colors. And here's the one I made, using my 4 colors (unblocked):
- Be sure to read the designer's Special Stitches descriptions and Changing Colors notes - important stuff!
- If you are unfamiliar with Bobble Stitches, watch the Moogly video tutorial HERE before you begin this pattern - but do note that her bobble includes only 3 dc, not 5 as in the video.
- The pattern itself is so well written, I didn't take any notes while making it at all! Great beginner pattern! I even ended up at exactly 12".
- My color changes were as written in the pattern: Round 1-2 Blue; Round 3 Red; Round 4 - 5 White; Round 6-7 Green; Round 8-10 Red; and Round 11 Blue.
