I’ve made a bazillion Ojo de Dios, Eye of God (Eyes of God? Eye of Gods? Eyes of Gods?), and I don’t remember who taught me or where I learned.
Not once has it occurred to me to use more than 2 sticks.
I like Rascal Raccoon‘s version, because I like the extra bit of pattern the third stick provides.
I’ll go get a bunch of sticks. Can you raid your stash of yarn? Meet you back here in a bit!
