square into star

A Christmas star that started out as a square.

Weaving ch-28 loops over and under the sides of the square...oh, I love this pattern!

The pattern is from MAGIC CROCHET magazine October 2002 - Number 140 and designed Hiroko Hanai.

At first, my crochet thread was causing quite a knotted mess (because you are unable to shove the ball of thread thru each corner opening when weaving) but I just let it.

Cause a mess, that is.

Because in the end, after you clip your threads --- voilà! -- the twisted square turns into a beautiful Christmas star.
