    Hello!! I’d love to make this afghan, And I am intrigued with the idea of doing it as a rug. Would you still use the acrylic yarn or a cotton yarn?

    Ohhh, you are spot on. I looked over at the bare spot in my livingroom in front of the woodstove and I’m thinkin’ how nice it’d be there. Yes, I’d protect it from sparks, etc. I would need to make it as large as the other woman who made it 115 inches!!! It dawned on me that’s 5 inches short of TEN FEET!!! Well, if I start now, it will keep me warm during the winter as I make it bigger and BIGger and BIGGER!!!

  8. I went directly to the Redheart website and half of these colors are not available. Disappointed.

    • Times change and so does the yarn. Colours are updated frequently. I know I did this afghan a few years back. Life gets boring if everything remains the same.

    Hello Mikey, I love this pattern but want to use it in another way. What I mean is I want to be able to attach it to the bottom of a jacket to make a skirt for the jacket. I have seen coats with a flared skirt on them and I would like to make one for myself. Is there a way to make this afghan open in one of the valleys between the points or at the center of one of the points themselves? I guess what I really want to know is if this can be worked in rows instead of rounds and still have the star points? please let me know if this is possible or if there is a pattern available that is done in rows so I can make my jacket with a skirt, thank you.
