For centuries the Northern Star has guided travellers on their way, and has been linked to the virgin Mary (Ave Maris Stella – Hail Star of the Sea). It is not strange that such an important star would feature in folk art. The 8 pointed star is a common folklore motif – not just in the Nordic countries, but in many other areas all over the world. For this pattern I played with the traditional 8 pointed star, and incorporated elements reminiscent of traditional Dutch embroidery.
This pattern will be available very soon!
