Crochet Motif IX: Six-pointed Star
Lion Brand® Lion® Wool
Motif = 5 in. [12.75 cm] diameter. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size
specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be
sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what
the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person.
If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller
size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Ch 9, sl st in beg ch to form a ring. Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 18 sc in ring, join with sl st in beg sc. Rnd 2: (Ch 9, sc in 4th ch from hook, hdc in each of next 2 ch, dc into each of next 3 ch,
skip next 2 sc, sl st in next sc) around – 6 points. Fasten off.

Crochet Motif IX: Six-pointed Star Reviewed by Nancy Reeves on 2009-09-16
This was my first "Easy" pattern. It seemed pretty simple, although I was confused by "skip next two sts and sl in the next sc". I started off my first point with what I thought was a sl in the next sc, and it turned out to have awkwardly big gaps between the points. I ended up needing seven points.
I believe the pattern is fine, but as I am self-taught (with the help of the learning center), perhaps we could have a section on "sl in the next sc?"
p.s. I used an acrylic yarn, and my gauge wasn't exact. perhaps that had something to do with my problems.
