Tiny Lacy Well Star with 5 points


Several weeks ago I showed another lacy 5-pointed star. This star has some similarities (besides being the same color) and some differences. The points in both have the lacy loops along the edge of each point. Both stars have five points. However, the centers are different. This one has a Well Center and the other one had a Web center. In addition, the points for this star are plain - they do not have the small heart-shaped clusters running down the center of each point.



































Here are the instructions for the Lacy Well Star with 5 points.

Remember to tie a connecting knot (CK) at the end of each round to form the last loop of that round.


Well Center
Round 1
mesh stick: #3 knitting needle
Form a grommet with 20 loops, the last one tied by hand with a connecting knot (CK). (20 loops in the round)

Round 2
mesh stick: #3 knitting needle
Net 1 more knot in the loop formed by the CK, net 2 knots in all other loops. (40 loops in each round)

Plain Stitch
Rounds 3-4
mesh stick: #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop. (40 loops in each round)

Lacy Pointed Edge
Row 1
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for next 7 loops. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (7 loops in the row)

Row 2
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 7 loops. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (7 loops in the row)

Row 3
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 6 loops. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (6 loops in the row)

Row 4
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 5 loops. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (5 loops in the row)

Row 5
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 4 loops. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (4 loops in the row)

Row 6
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 3 loops. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (3 loops in the row)

Row 7
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop for 2 loops. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. (2 loops in the row)

Row 8
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in the first loop. Do NOT net in the last loop of the row. Turn the netting to go across the row in the other direction. Cut the thread. (1 loop in the row)


Additional Points
Anchor the thread by tying the thread from the needle to the last loop net in round 4. Net into the first free loop to the right of the point just completed.

Row 1
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Net 1 knot into the following 7 loops (total knots tied in the row equals 8, 7 loops). Untie the anchoring knot tied into the previously made loop.

Rows 2-8
mesh sticks:  #0 knitting needle
Repeat rows 2-8 of the Lacy Pointed Edge.

Continue repeating instructions in the Additional Points section until 5 points have been made.
