    My first go at crochet & I’ve managed to make an awesome rainbow star for my baby. The combo of written instructions & video are perfect. I even managed to cope doing it left handed. Super pleased with the result!

    Hello Mikey! I’m currently doing this blanket for a baby shower at the end of June. I have a question. The last row with the eyelash yarn. Is it the double crochets an the other rows or is it a finishing stitch?

      Double Crochet… but you can use your own creativity if you want to go in a different direction.

        I was inspired by the eyelash yarn idea. I did a “regular” row for my last row, but added the eyelash yarn to what I used for the rest making the last row 2 strands. It gives a really nice edge (my opinion).

    I’m left handed and am having a super hard time doing the 19 dc in the beginning round. I don’t have the beginning gap to measure like you do, it just kind of bunches up strangely. What am I doing wrong?

    Mikey, I’ve made a red white and blue blanket from this pattern and it turned out fantastic!! But I’ve been requested to fill it in to make a square. Do you have a pattern for this or possibly make one up? Or even a few suggestions would be great. Thanks!

      I’ve been asked several times to do that… I just don’t know how to and keep the stitches easy to follow. Seeing it’s only 5 points. there’s no magic number.

    I used this pattern to make a rainbow blanket for my daughter. It turned out great! It wasn’t laying flat the first two times I started, so i watched more of the video and saw I was missing the first stitch in the point. Once I corrected that, it was perfect. I’d share a picture of it if I knew how.
    Thanks

    The videos he does are so helpful! I have made multiple blankets of this and the 12 point spectrum afghan. He makes everything so easy to understand and so easy to see too. Great job!

    Love this! I will try to make it into a baby bunting by tweaking it here and there because I could not find a even semi legible pattern for a star bunting my friend wanted…. I may add I will probably do a Jacobs Ladder style stitch to try and close most of the holes to make it more appropriate for a 0-3 month old baby…

    Perfect video instructions, you were BANG ON! Easy to follow, easy to see and I have a beautiful star for my afghan! Thanks Mikey!!

    I was having the same issue, so I followed the instructions from a 12-point star pattern I’ve used which state to increase one less stitch in every third round; i.e., two rounds of putting three stitches in each side of the point, followed by one round of putting only two stitches in each side of the point. I still did the “CH 3” at the tip of the points and the afghan stayed flat.

    I have tried over and over again and after about 10 rows my blanket stops laying flat- any idea why? tried 3 different sized hooks and the middle of the star bubbles up if the points are flat and the points curl up if the middle is flat 🙁
