With Part 6 of the Cosmic Cal completed,
doesn’t it look perfect with this chair covered in a luxurious fabric by ‘Timorous Beasties‘…..
…….. on to Part 7 in which we meet the dastardly Cosmic Stars!!!
Helen’s You Tube tutorial for Part 7 is here.
Continuing with the Jumping Jelly Whirl until completing Round 78, I worked Round 79, the first part of the Cosmic Stars, in Citrus Whirlette.
I don’t know if it is because I am left-handed and following a right-handed video, or because I was using a 4 ply cotton yarn which has no give, but I just could not get the placement of the spokes right – stitch markers to the rescue!
There was much chat on the FB groups about these stars and I was near to giving up on them when one wonderful person suggested working into front posts instead of front loops and this worked much better for me. Phew!
By the time I had worked along one side I was down to only needing the bottom middle marker to show me the way
I was so relieved to get to the end of those Stars, knowing I would never have to make them again!
However, lots of people said they loved them and are making several more Cosmics including the Stars.
Part 9 to come.
