Simple Star

This is a quick one shuttle pattern, Helen Stammers Simple Star.  The pattern can be found here.  I have used a vintage Coats 30 thread so it does not show up  super white.  The stars  are tatted with silver, gold and blue beads, I used a diluted white glue to stiffen.

Put 40 beads on the ball thread and take about a meter off the ball and wind a shuttle.  The pattern can also be done without beads on the picots. 


  1. Very pretty stars! I think the beads make all the difference, though I can see you could leave them out.

  2. I really like this star, although I can see it probably needs some blocking or careful shaping but very effective.
