How To Crochet a Star

I love these stars. I originally designed these for the 4th July for my American friends but they are also so perfect for Christmas or as sheriff badges. The finishing round also really brings this design together. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have enjoyed designing it.

You can watch the video tutorial here:



All you need is;

- Dk/Light worsted weight yarn in red, white and blue or any colour or yarn type you like
- 3.5mm crochet hook or any hook suitable for your yarn
- Yarn needle and scissors

Note* when joining a new colour, join the new colour in the sl st that joins the round, i.e instead of yarning over with the same colour to finish the sl st, yarn over with the new colour.

Round 1
Ch4, sl st in 1st ch to form a loop, crochet 5sc into loop, sl st in 1st sc to join - (5)

Round 2
Ch1, 1sc in same st as previous sl st, 2sc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in ch1 to join - (10)

Round 3
Ch1, 1sc in same st as previous sl st, 2sc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in ch1 to join - (20)

Round 4
Ch1, 2sc in next st, *1sc in next st, 2sc in next st* repeat from * to * until end, sl st in ch1 to join - (30)

Round 5
*ch6, sl st in 2nd st from hook, 1sc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1dc in next st, 1tr in next st, sk5 sts on main part of star, 1sc in next st* repeat from * to * until end finishing with a sl st in 1st ch of 6 instead of the 1sc, join your last colour in this last sl st.

Round 6
Crochet 1sc neatly around edge of star, fasten off and either use remaining yarn to form a loop to hang your star or just tie in all your tails as normal.
