Annie's Attic has done it again! In December 2007, I learned they had re-released the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan pattern, and today I learned they've re-released the 6-Pointed Star Afghan pattern (leaflet 885044) for $6.99 $5.99 [as of July 3, 3008]. This is the very much sought after Six-Pointed Star Afghan pattern originally published as leaflet 87A50 and designed by Sandra J. Smith - and now you can get it at Annie's Attic!

Back by popular demand! An Annie's Original! This perpetual favorite will make a stunning focal point in any home. The generous, intricate-looking 69" diameter throw is made using simple single and double crochet stitches and worsted weight yarn.

[Update July 3, 2008 - Also available at e-PatternsCentral.com for $5.99!]

There's no need now to hunt around for the original Six-Pointed Star Afghan leaflet 87A50 to get the pattern!

2007_0418willm24pt1whole.jpgI don't have this pattern in my collection, but I did, however, create my own version of a 6-point to 12-point to 24-point Round Ripple Afghan (instructions are here).

My friend loves this pattern, where I she get it?

Hi, Nancy - That information is in this blog post on which you left your comment.

Hi, Lori - As explained in the blog post on which you left your comment, you can get the pattern for the blue round ripple at the Annie's Attic website.

I purchased the pattern, and believe a few steps have been left out.

Hi, Dee - I don't have the pattern, but you can try posting on the Crochetville forum (many people there have made the blanket from the pattern). http://www.crochetville.org/

i did buy the pattern from annies attic but i dont know how to share it with u all. Can anyone tell me how to go about that?

Casey

i would also like to acquire the annie's attic pattern if you are still sharing

Please note that "sharing" is a copyright violation and is against the law. Please do not "share" patterns on this website. Thank you.

There are many FREE patterns for round pointed afghans - a long list of them is available on my blog: http://www.tamemymind.com/blog/2007/03/19/round-afghan-blanket-patterns-crocheted-or-knitted.php

If your still sharing, I would love to have a copy of the round star afghan. I would be truly grateful.
Thanks
Vikki

How difficult is this pattern? I have been crocheting many years, but it looks difficult.

Thank You,
Miss Vikki

Hi, Vikki - If you've been crocheting for a while and are familiar with ch, sc, dc, tc, and slip stitch, you shouldn't find this pattern a problem. You may also find the Crochetville online community at crochetville.org interesting and helpful.

Casey....i gess u can share it through email....

Would like a copy also if sharing is OK.

I'm shocked at how many of you don't realize that "sharing" a pattern that you paid for is not only illegal, but just not right. I'm a new crocheter and have only used free patterns so far, but they were always freely offered by the person that created them. If you "share" your copy of a pattern that is for sale, you have stolen that amount from the person who created the wonderful design every time you "shared" it.

Why is the concept so hard?

Crista, the reason the 'concept is so hard' is because many of us can't afford to purchase patterns but we love to make the pretty items so, we share. You are right tho, it is wrong to 'steal' someones pattern that they worked hard to invent and then to take their profits is wrong. I usually buy a single pattern and then make my own versions of it and those versions are ones I share. Don't 'share' purchased patterns directly on this website because the webmaster can be shut down and fined for it. Be nice folks and just have fun! k? Love you fellow crocheters!!!

I really like the original pattern, but the price is just too much for me. Your alternative version isn't bad, the best of the alternative version to me, but the instructions just aren't clear enough for me. I'm one of those crocheters who needs line by line instructions. If the pattern does go on sale for less, though, less me know. But I just bought a magazine with over 20 patterns, including afghans, for the same price, so I just can't justify spending $6 for one pattern, no matter how pretty. Especially if I'm not even positive I'd be able to manage it. That's why I like being able to preview things in books first (at the bookstore or library), because I can at least get an idea of what I'm getting myself into before I spend the money.

I think that's part of why people share things, especially things online. Some of them, imo, are really more than they should be price-wise and because of the nature of the beast, you really can't preview things. Maybe...
