A few weeks ago I found a cute crocheted star on Pinterest, but couldn’t find the pattern, so I decided to try to make my own pattern! Here is what I did:
I used a J hook and Red Heart yarn. I think a better quality yarn would give the star a little more structure, but it’s what I had on hand.
***Update*** I recently saw on Live Craft Love where she used spray starch to help give her stars shape! A great idea and tutorial!
Chain 7 and make a ring. (This was a little small. You could maybe go chain 10)
Crochet 5 puff stitches in the ring.
In the top of each puff stitch: Double crochet 3, chain 1, double crochet 3. Chain 1 in between each set of 6 double crochets.
The third row is when it becomes a star. This row is similar to the second row. In each set of 6 double crochets from the second row, crochet another 6 double crochets in the chain. For these 6 double crochets, chain 3 instead of 1. You will double crochet 3, chain 3, double crochet 3.
The next step is a little tricky. Next you single crochet into the chain that separates the 6 double crochets in the second row. Go straight into a double crochet for the next set of 6.
Repeat to complete 5 points of the star.
There you have it! It only took me about 15 minutes.
I’m currently using mine as a coaster, but they can also be easily be turned into an ornament!
