Free knitting pattern: Star of David

    I was looking at a site for Christmas ornaments to knit small gifts to bring in to my coworkers and I found a pattern for a six-pointed star. I tried it, but found it to be very confusing. So, I decided to come up with my own pattern.
   Here it goes - my first published knitting pattern. Please do not reproduce without my permission. Feel free, however, to knit as many as you like for any purpose you like.

CO 21 stitches
Rows 1-7 k1, k2tog, k to end - 14 stitches
Rows 8-14 k1, k1fb, k to end - 21 stitches
Row 15 BO first 6 stitches, k8, BO last 6 stitches
Cut off end of yarn leaving a tail to weave in
As you would with switching colors start where you left off the 8 stitches.
Row 16-21 k1, k2tog, k to end
Row 22 k2tog

Pick up 8 stitches in the center of the CO row and repeat rows 16-22.

Weave in ends.

I will add a picture once I get my camera working.
