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:
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!
