Stars

Motifs with 5 points may be called stars, 6 points = snowflakes

5 point Star by Mrs. O. D. Humphreys star
Tatted Medallion - 5 point Star by Mrs. O. D. Humphreys Comfort Magazines June 1925 pg. 7

5-point Star Comfort Magazine Mrs. Humphreys star
The design elements in this star are the simplest used in tatting. There are only rings and chains. It is given a lacy effect by tatting a picot after nearly every double stitch. If tatted in a sturdy six cord hard twist thread it would have a lot of body. However, a soft pearl cotton type thread would need to be stiffened and blocked before use. The star has many applications. It can be appliquéd onto wearables or joined in multiples for collars or cuffs. Individual stars would be lovely de

Star with Half-closed Rings by Nancy Tracy star[offsite link]

I find coasters make lovely small doilies scattered on the dressing table or bookcase, and this one will certainly test your cluny tatting skills!

Tatted Star Doily Charlene Finiello star[offsite link]
Carolyn Groves noticed this star pattern in Old-Time Crochet Winter 1998 issue. It was designed by Charlene Finiello who has given permission to share the pattern with us.

Tiny Square Motif star[offsite link]
This little motif could be used for all sorts of purposes - it would make a great coaster or small doily but I´m not sure it would be a good idea for a tablecloth. This one is fairly easy but does require the use of shuttle thread joins (otherwise known as downward joins). Saved by the wayback machine.

Triangular Medallion star[offsite link]
Here is another very simple pattern by Lisa Trumble. Again there is a little two shuttle work in it but it is not difficult.
