Egyptian Star Flower Stool – Free Pattern

I’ve had the patterns for this ready for a week now, but I haven’t shared it because I still couldn’t decide on a name!  I made the mistake of asking for recommendations on Facebook, and I think honestly there were around 200 different suggestions!  They were all amazing, and it was wonderful what different people could see when they look at the stool.  Some saw Aztecs, others carnival, the circus, Arabian style, Moroccan even.  I loved all the suggestions!

There were a couple that really stood out – Star Flower, Moroccan Candy, and the Circle of Life.  The Moroccan Candy was probably my favourite, but then it doesn’t really give room to use other colours.  And I had the inspiration from Lucky the Camel on Holidays in Egypt earlier this year, and I can’t decide if the top of the stool is a star or a flower, so star flower it is!  So I’m enormously excited to bring you the pattern for the Egyptian Star Flower Stool!

En dames, voor jullie heb ik het ook in het Nederlands vertaald, met dank aan mijn vriendin Kirsten van Haak Maar Raak!  Do be kind, it is the first time I’ve written a design in Dutch.

You’ll need 5 ball of Scheepjes Catona Denim, which you can pick up from Wool Warehouse* or Caro’s Atelier in the Benelux and Germany.

You can find the patterns below/beneden vindt jij het patroon.

  5. Hi, thanks for beautiful pattern. I’m trying it and I can’t seem to progress past round 9. Is ch2 counted as hdc? In round 10 there is ch2 then 6hdc with colourB, inc with A…then repetitions with hdc8, inc….but then at the end of reps you have 2 more hdc….if you count ch2 plus 6 hdcs from beginning and last 2 hdcs, then one part of that round has 9 hdcs… Is that correct? Going forward to round 11 from there my petals come really crooked whether I finish with 2hdc or 1hdc again probably because I’m not sure if ch2 is counted as stitch.
    It would be really helpful if there is stitch count at the end of every round.

  6. I just love this and this is my first time on your blog. I’d love it if you’d join my crafty linky party, craft schooling sunday, (but open now) lots of great inspiration from around the world, including of course quite a few from The Netherlands. hope to see you there!
