Chain 105 (any odd number will work)
Row 1: sc5tog from 2nd chain, ch 1, *sc5tog from ch 1 (pull up first loop from “eye” of the star, pull up next loop from in between last two spikes worked, pull up next loop from last chain worked, pull up next loop from next chain, pull up loop from next chain (6 loops on the hook). Yarn around hook, bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1. Repeat from * until you have 1 chain left, then work 1 hdc in that last ch.
Row 2: Ch 2 and turn. *Work 2 hdc in each ch 1 (“eye” of the star) from previous row. Repeat from * across the row, then 1 hdc in the last stitch.
Row 3: Ch 3 and turn. sc5tog from 2nd chain (bring up a loop in second ch from the hook, bring up a loop in third ch from the hook, bring up a loop from the first stitch, bring up a loop from each of the next three stitches (6 loops on the hook), yarn around hook and bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1. Now work the row as we similarly did in row 1,*sc5tog from ch 1 (pull up first loop from “eye” of the star, pull up next loop from in between last two spikes worked, pull up next loop from last stitch worked, pull up next loop from next stitch, pull up loop from next stitch (6 loops on the hook). Yarn around hook, bring through all 6 loops, then ch 1. Repeat from * until you have 1 chain left, then 1 hdc in that topmost chain from the previous row.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until rectangle is desired length, ending on row 2 (I made mine about 21 inches tall from the starting edge).
*Note: Be sure to change colors when you begin row 3, for the best visual effect.
Assembly & Finishing:
Wrap the rectangle around so that one of the bottom edges touches along one of the sides of the rectangle (as shown in the photo below). Fasten with removable stitch markers if needed and turn inside out. With a matching piece of yarn, work a whip stitch across to seam.
Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished!
