This is a pattern to crochet a very simple, 5 pointed star. It is made in just 3 rounds and uses very basic techniques so I think it is suitable for even beginners.
The pattern uses DK yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. It is written using US crochet terms.
Sc – single crochet – insert hook into next stitch, yarn over (yo), pull through stitch (st), (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops.
Hdc – half double crochet – yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 3 loops.
Dc – double crochet – yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through first 2 loops, (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through final 2 loops.
Bobble stitch – this is the same as a hdc2tog, only worked in the same st, instead of being worked over 2 sts – yo, insert hook through next stitch, yo, pull back through stitch (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook) yo and insert hook through same stitch yo, hook back through stitch (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 3 loops. This may sound complicated, but it isn’t really I promise!
Trb – treble crochet – yo hook twice, insert hook into stitch, yo pull through stitch – (4 loops on hook). Yo and pull through first two loops, (3 loops on hook). Yo and pull through two loops, (2 loops on hook). Yo and pull through two remaining loops.
Round 1 – Make a ring using the magic ring technique, chain 2, make 9hdc into the ring. Pull the ring closed and slip into top of the 2 chain to create a complete circle. (10 stitches)
Round 2 – Join new color, chain 2, hdc into the first stitch. Chain 1, bobble stitch, and continue with chain 1, bobble stitch until last stitch. Slip into top of first stitch to join the circle. (20 stitches)
Round 3 – this round is broken down into 5 sets of stitch groups each worked across 4 stitches. Join new colour. (Sc, hdc) in first stitch, (dc, trb, chain 2) in second stitch, (trb, dc) in third stitch, (hdc, sc) in fourth stitch . This creates the first star point. Follow the same pattern across each set of four stitches to create 5 points.
Ta dah! A super simple 5 pointed star, fasten off and enjoy!
