Thank for generously sharing this beauty! I would like to make it to fit a Queen bed; is there any advice you can give me please? I would be making it in #3 Light Worsted DK which is readily available here.
Thanks in advance
To make a Queen size afghan, you have a few options. Use a larger hook; add more rows to the outer edge; or, I would consider another round of the granny squares, then continue to the outer edge.
Hope this helps, good luck!
I have run into a problem. I am at the point where I have made a ‘half granny square’ but I cannot seem to figure out how I am supposed to connect it to the side-sometimes I have an issue following directions due to not reading carefully but this time I have read the directions several times and am stumped. What am I missing?
Join the half square in middle of each side of afghan as follows:
with slip stitch on hook and half square right side up, join Navy in chain 4 space of beg chain 4 with slip stitch (on other end of piece), chain 2.
Holding the half square in place back to back against one of the squares to which it will be joined (with half square in front),
slip stitch in corner single crochet of full square, 2 dc in same chain space of half square, *skip 3 single crochet of full square, single crochet in next single crochet, work 3 dc in next chain 1 space of half square; rep from * 5 more times to point,
skip 3 single crochet of full square, single crochet in top single crochet of current full square, single crochet in top single crochet of next full square, 3 dc in same space of half square,
rep from first * 6 more times to bottom, skip 3 single crochet of full square, single crochet in next single crochet, chain 1, fasten off. Weave in ends. Rep for other 3 half squares.
I’m at the point where I’m adding the half square. The pattern doesn’t seem to match the picture. In the picture the half square look like full squares. Is there a separate pattern for this picture?
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, it has been a bit of a challenge getting an answer for you. Check out the pictures on the Ravelry site : https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-star
They no longer have the pattern itself, but they do have these notes, which may help:
Note: Several people have reported errors with the book version of this pattern – errata apparently available direct from Herrschners.

Hi I am really confused on how to make the center star. It seas to change 5 then slip stitch to form a ring, that part is easy, then round 1 seas chane 4 dc chane 1 dc n repeat that 11 times, got that but then when I get to round 2 it seas 2 dc in one space, 3 dc in the next space, 2 dc in the next space repeat 5 times, it doesn’t go all the way around if I only repeat 5 more times, then round 3 is just not clear at all
Johanna Horsley says
Good afternoon could you please email me the pattern of the Blue Star Crocheted Afghan, so that I can print out the pattern.
I’ve created these two rounds, and here is an explanation: 1. 2 dc in one space, Ch 3, dc in same space. 2. (3 dc in next sp, 2 dc in next sp) 5 times, (3 dc in next sp, 2 dc in next sp) 5 times You should have 5 sets of 3dc, 2dc; 3. 3 dc in next sp, sl st in top of ch 3. 3 dc in next sp, sl st in top of ch 3. then end with 3 dc in the next space. Join with slip stitch.
Hope this helps!
