New Pattern: Megastar, a Six-Pointed Star Tunisian Crochet Blanket

Megastar Blanket Crochet Pattern

Six-pointed star blanket uses the Tunisian crochet Slant Stitch and color changes to create wide stripes which meet to form a burst of color that radiates from the center. The stripes are continued in the surrounding border.

A few years ago, I was exploring how to create different star and pinwheel shapes using Tunisian Crochet. One of the first motifs I came up with was a five-pointed star shape, which I went on to use in my Seaside Throw Afghan which was published in the Interweave Crochet Summer 2009 issue. The six-pointed star was one of the next incarnations of the Tunisian crochet star motif. I enlarged the small motif into a large star, and sketching and playing with color options brought about the stripes and burst of color from the center of the star.

This afghan is shown on a king-sized bed, but the pattern can easily be adapted to any size just be decreasing the stitch and row count.

This innovative throw uses Tunisian slant stitch to make sturdy star-shaped motifs and triangular inserts. The starfish are caught in a netting of Tunisian double crochet and bordered in a rope-like stitch. Two sizes of crochet hooks balance the dense interior and looser netting for a light throw with drape.
