I wanted to make a present for my friend in Brazil (that I visited last year, and that I made the granny stripe blanket for). It had to be small, because I was asking her mum to take it with her when she visited.
I decided on a dangly, mobile, garland thingy!
I followed the free pattern for amigurumi stars by Amy's Odyssey that I found on Ravelry. Mine look more like flowers, because I did the 3 rounds in 3 different colours. I've made this pattern using solid colours before and they looked a lot more star like.
I used a 3mm crochet hook and lots of DK yarn from my stash. There are 2 little gold bells on the end that I attached to a chain of crochet.
Here it is in action. I think I might make one for myself!
