Over the last few years I've been pushing myself to learn new things in the world of crochet. I've been itching to try my hand at a ripple star afghan, and when a friend recently announced she was having a baby, I took the opportunity to try out this pattern. It's a 12 pointed star, and the pattern is free to download on ravelry.
The yarns were mostly stash, and include Caron Simply Soft in Blackberry, Caron Simply Soft Party in Platinum (it sparkles!), and Yarn Bee Soft Secret in Lilac. Pretty darn thrilled with how it turned out.
