Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.1 shows how round beg and ends. A.2 is repeated 4 times in total on round - NOTE: Last round is explained in pattern First round shows entire circle.

CROCHET INFO -1:
At beg of every tr round, replace first tr with 3 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch - NOTE: Work sl st around first ch-space/in first tr from previous round until first tr at beg of next round.

CROCHET INFO-2:
At beg of every dc round, replace first dc with 1 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch and 1 sl st around first ch-space worked on next round.

BOBBLE:
Work 1 tr around ch-space/in tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), 4 tr around same ch-space/in same tr the same way, pull yarn through all 6 sts on hook.

FILLING TIP:
Fill star with cotton wool before crochet tog. Place some cotton wool on each side of holster so that it stands upright, and fill cotton wool out to tips. Holster should lay edge to edge with last round where stars where crochet tog. Use too much cotton wool rather than too little, excess cotton wool can be pulled out after crochet tog.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP STAR:
First work 1 interior holster, then 2 stars. Work all pieces tog on last round. Then fill top star with cotton wool.

HOLSTER:
Work 16 LOOSE ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Belle and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 1 ch, 1 dc in every ch = 16 dc. Continue with 1 dc in every dc until piece measures approx. 10 cm. Fasten off.

STAR:
Work 6 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Belle and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above - i.e. work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 5 ch (= 1 tr + 2 ch), * 3 tr around ch-ring, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, 2 tr around ch-ring, finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round and 1 sl st around first ch-space = 5 tr-groups and 5 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO-1. Work * 3 tr around first/next ch-space, 2 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 10 tr-groups and 5 ch-spaces.
ROUND 3: * Skip 1 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, 3 tr around first/next ch-space, 2 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-*5 times in total = 50 tr and 5 ch-spaces. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 4: * Skip 1 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr, 3 tr around first/next ch-space, 2 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-*5 times in total = 70 tr and 5 ch-spaces.
ROUND 5: * Skip 1 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 6 tr, 3 tr around next ch-space, 2 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space, 1 tr in each of the next 6 tr, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-*5 times in total = 90 tr and 5 ch-spaces.
ROUND 6: READ CROCHET INFO-2. Work * 1 dc in first/next tr, 2 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 BOBBLE - see explanation above - in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 bobble in next tr, 3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 4 ch, 1 bobble around same ch-space, 3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 bobble in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 bobble in next tr, 2 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 30 bobbles, 35 ch-space and 10 dc.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 dc around first/next ch-space, 2 ch, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 3 ch, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 3 ch, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 4 ch, 1 bobble around same ch-space, 3 ch, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 3 ch, 1 bobble around next ch-space, 2 ch, 1 dc around next ch-space, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 30 bobbles, 40 ch-spaces and 10 dc. Fasten off. Work 1 more star the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Place the 2 stars tog WS against WS, place holster between these edge to edge - see last round in diagram A.1/A.2 (and symbol explanation for arrow) for placement - READ FILLING TIP, work as follows:
ROUND 8: Fasten with 1 sl st in bobble, 1 ch, then work * 1 ch, 2 dc around each of the first/next 3 ch-spaces, 1 ch, 3 dc + 1 ch around each of the next 2 ch-spaces, 3 dc around next ch-space, 1 ch, 3 dc around same ch-space, 1 ch, 3 dc + 1 ch around each of the next 2 ch-spaces *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, finish round with 1 sl st in first ch. Fasten off. Turn piece and work the same way on opposite side of holster and the other star, i.e. as follows: Fasten with 1 sl st in bobble, 1 ch, 2 dc around each of the first/next 3 ch-spaces, 1 ch, 1 sl st in bobble. Fasten off nicely in transitions.

Je ne comprends pas très bien l'explication de la "housse" et de "l'étui"! Merci de bien vouloir m'éclairer à se sujet! Mylène

Bonjour Mme Dépinoy, les vidéos ci-dessous montrent comment réaliser l'étui et l'accrocher à l'étoile. Bon crochet!
