These wonderful stars can be made in many different sizes, all you have to do is alter the size of your sticks.
Start off by lashing the two sticks together.
do this by forming a cross with the sticks.
Using the wool tie these stickes together by lashing a knot over the two sticks.
Weaving can be done in multiple ways from loops around the sticks for an inverted look to a simple under and over method which is what we used.

Change colors by tieing in a new strand.
