Starfish


Ever since my parents moved to Florida, they have been collecting sea shells non stop. (It is pretty cute that they go on shell collecting dates!) I am inspired by the beauty of sea creatures, and I decided to knit a starfish. The pattern can be found in Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh, a book that has fantastic instructions and intermediate photos.

The starfish was shown knit in a worsted weight multi-colored yarn. I used fingering weight wool that I had dyed myself (see my purple and tea dyeing experiments) and used size 1 (2.5 mm) needles. The change in yarn weight was to produce a smaller product. I achieved a striped effect by alternating rows with three different colors of purple wool.

This pattern was fun to do. There were multiple pieces to knit, but they were not sewn together, stitches were picked up and then they were knit together. This made a very seamless (no pun intended) final product.



Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! This one is dedicated to you.
