Staggered Stars — Note: this pattern is practically the same as “Like a Diamond”, but its spacing is slightly different. (Can’t find “Like a Diamond” for the 31 x 31 loom, so I may need to post that next!)

Recommended two-color warping: L1-2 in lighter color, L3-4 in darker color. (Don’t use high contrast colors—see photo at bottom of post.)

Staggered Stars

Sample 1—L1-2: BS “Sea Shell”; L3-4: CSS “Blackberry”
Sample 2—L1-2: RHS “Navy”; L3-4: RHS “White”

Note: This warping configuration (L1-2 / L3-4) works well with analogous colors but, in my opinion, doesn’t look good with high contrast. Warp L1-2 with the lighter color, L3-4 with dark.  [And I’ve noticed a mistake: in the navy / white sample, R15 is missing the top of its star.] I haven’t tried it yet, but it might also look good in a L1, 3-4 / L2 two-color combination, or a single color.
