This star coaster is made using the entrelac method of knitting. No worries if you have not made entrelac before, though! The pattern is written and also includes a video of the full pattern. These neat little stars can also be used to make bunting, or even as appliques. Have fun with them!!
*Please note, it is easy to end up with a little hole in the center of your star. There is a tip in the video on how to avoid this, and a note in the pattern, but the video makes it much clearer. If you do end up with the little hole, just leave a really long tail when you finish your star, weave it down to the center and use it to close the hole.
