Grandma Twinkle Tutorial Edit

This is a edit on my
last tutorial...
It's all about tension...
If you Grandma Twinkle is not sitting flat...
It could be that your tension is too tight...
So just follow this easy fix...
On the last round
make... 4 Treble(DC),4 Chain 4 Treble(DC)
in your corner space
Then 1 DC(SC)
In next space etc...
Continue in this way for the whole round...
That will make it sit very flat...


Hope this helps...

This is so good. Found you via Attic24. Crochet/knit Christmas tree decorations for friends and family - a new one every year. This is the one for this year. They will all be thrilled. I use cream yarn with a gold thread running through! Bought cheaply at Lidl! Thank you so much for sharing.

Hello from another who's clicked over here from Lucy at her Attic 24. How I love to crochet and to find ways to make what might be old, new again.

Even before this visit, I also have been crocheting five-pointed stars and creating garlands/buntings with them.

Love to think of all the variations that are possible on this theme.

See you again soon. Cheers!

Just curious if you've crocheted around it to make a square, like a White Star bordered by Blue. I'm thinking of making an American flag and have concerns about making blue squares with white stars. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Debbi

I'm wanting to crochet an American flag (for a friend), and want to make a Blue Granny square with this star in white in the middle. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. -Debbi
