Crochet Creators Star Decoration


I went to visit a family member, and I met Sara. Sara helps a lot of people as part of her job, and she is a wonderful person. Sara expressed an interest in learning how to make a crochet star table top cover, and she asked me to make a step-by-step YouTube video tutorial showing how to make the crochet design that you see in the picture above.

I decided to use the magic circle for the center, because I didn’t want an opening in the center. People that want to use this design for a Christmas tree skirt can start with a chain of 16, and then slst into the first ch that you created. After that, make 16 double crochet (dc) into the ring and slst into the top st of the first dc that you created. The rest is made the same way as in the video tutorial.

Thank you Sara for the wonderful crochet idea!

Merry Christmas everyone! Happy Crocheting!

So, I was reading my blog mail this morning when I ran across The Wee House of Crochet’s blog post.  She was discussing all of her finished beautiful crochet items. One of them is the Ubuntu CAL designed by Scheepjes Dedri “Lookwhatimade.

“Ubuntu: I am because we are.”
The belief that we are defined by our compassion and kindness towards others.

Designer Dedri Uys from Look at What I Made has worked for over two years on this beautiful design. She let herself be inspired by ‘Ubuntu’:

“The word Ubuntu in a Nguni Bantu term meaning “humanity towards others” or “I am because we are”. Through Crochet-alongs, I have found a community that constantly reminds me of the essence of Ubuntu: connection, community, and mutual caring for all. We wanted to honour and celebrate that in this CAL, both in the design and how we choose to engage with each other as we embark on this journey.”

Thank you Dedri Uys for an amazing crochet design!!!

Update: Someone made the Ubuntu afghan for the San Diego County Fair 2019. If you would like to see it, and my crochet entries, here is the direct link: San Diego County Fair One of the Largest in the Nation
