Here’s a super fast crochet Star pattern that I designed that could be used for many different projects. In my sample, I used 100% cotton (Lily, Sugar ‘n Cream yarn) and a Size G crochet hook. The following stitches were used:
Half double crochet (HDC), Double crochet (DC), Treble crochet (TR), Slip stitch (SL), and PICOT stitch (chain ((CH)) 3 and make a SL stitch in 1st chain).
Begin by making a “magic loop” crocheting 10 HDC, join with SL in 1st HDC.
Round 2: Complete 2 HDC in each HDC stitch from previous row for a total of 20 HDC, join with a SL in 1st HDC, CH 1.
Round 3: In 1st HDC (where join was completed) crochet 1 HDC, 1 DC, 1 TR, do a picot stitch (CH 3 SL in 1st chain made), still in same stitch 1 TR, 1 DC, 1 HDC (completes pattern for 1st point). Skip next stitch, which will be partially covered by your 1st point of star. Complete a SL stitch in next stitch, Skip next stitch. * In next stitch, 1 HDC, 1 DC, 1 TR, do a Picot Stitch, 1 TR, 1 DC, 1 HDC, skip next stitch, SL in next stitch, skip next stitch. Continue from * to end completing 5 points of your Star. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
I did steam by stars and shaped them with my fingers while warm to help make the points sharp. ENJOY!!
