And here is where the pattern may be found:
|Love of Crochet's Quick Holiday Crochet,|
available now online and in stores.
Sample I made for the magazine, being blocked:
The commissioned star was crocheted in Natural, but someone at Love of Crochet must have decided that a red version would better fit their needs. I think it looks lovely in both shades - and how nice to know that the pattern has already been tested and successfully made by at least one other person!

It hangs on my Christmas tree every December, and is one of my favourite ornaments.
Just goes to show that good crochet is both Classic and enduring! Especially when properly blocked and stiffened.
