I’m super-excited to announce a new pattern in the Mochimochi Shop!
Lucky Stars have been in the works for a really long time. Back when I was first designing knitted toys, about five years ago, a star was one of my first ideas. But it took many failed attempts (and then a couple years in between tries, when I gave up on the idea for a while), before I figured out how to knit them the way that I pictured them in my head. It seems so simple now, but sometimes the simplest designs are the most difficult to work out!
The pattern comes in two sizes—a 2-1/2″-tall little Lucky Star that can slip into your pocket and a 5″-tall big Lucky Star that you can cuddly up with—and both can be knitted up in a matter of hours.
Techniques include knitting in the round on double-pointed needles (or magic loop with a circular needle) and picking up stitches.
The PDF pattern is now available as a download for $5 in the Mochimochi Shop!
