Star Alpha Bracelet Pattern

I have searched the internet over for a suitable five point star alpha pattern for my 4th of July bracelet I plan on making.  I found only one pattern, but it wasn’t really what I wanted my stars to look like.  Therefore, I created my own star pattern in Paint.  For a tutorial on how to create a pattern of any picture in Paint, go here.  I didn’t want the bracelet to be super wide, so I made the star smaller and added more blocks until it was 12 by 17.  I would add at least one knot of background color on the sides, to make it 14 knots wide.  That’s about 3/4 inch, depending on what floss is used.  I use regular embroidery floss.

Anyway, so when I was finished making the pattern in Paint, I transferred it here.  Technically, I didn’t really have to do that, but I wanted the pattern to be clear and bigger.

Here is the final pattern:

Star pattern


When made into a bracelet, the knots overlap and aren’t perfectly regular squares.

I’m going to try the pattern out alternating red and white stars over a blue background.  If it works out, I’ll post it!
