Knit Starry Light!

It is that time of year to knit stars with Fairy lights!!!

Starry Light

Do you want to make one (or two) with me?! Let's Knit Starry Light together!


The supply list is specific, and to have success knitting Starry Light, you’ll need each of these items.  Most of these items are readily available at your LYS or local hardware store, but that 66ft strand of fairy lights can be tough to find (and it’s gotta be 66ft–you can not split-splice fairy lights).

๐ŸŒŸ66ft LED Fairy lights (either indoor or outdoor) (affiliate link)
๐ŸŒŸSize 17 double pointed needles
๐ŸŒŸOptional but useful: Size 17 24-inch circular needle
๐ŸŒŸA few large stitch markers
๐ŸŒŸ48 inches [122 cm] of 15 or 17 gauge Aluminum Wire
๐ŸŒŸPattern for Starry Light

Note that LED Fairy Lights come in a variety of options: copper or silver wire, indoor or outdoor (or both), battery operated or USB plug-in, you can even get colored lights. Make sure you think about where you want to hang your star before you purchase your lights so you have the correct strands. I have a battery operated one for outdoors that we use in the winter on a tree, and in the summer when we camp!

Be prepared to knit more than one of these beauties... everyone who sees it is going to covet it! Plus, Starry Light is perfect on your deck or patio in the summer months, so don’t even think of packing these up after the holidays are over!

Happy Season of Light!
