I Wish I May, I Wish I Might

This is the last star that I've made for the project I'm working on. The pattern can be found here. Even though the pattern is for garland, I only used the star knitting pattern. Sadly this was my least favorite star that I've made (mainly because it wouldn't lie flat) but it was the right size. I was much happier with the star after I gave it a quick iron so it would stay flat!

Of course since this was the smallest star, it was also the quickest to knit!
