Crochet Star Pattern & Video Tutorial
Today I finally bring another Free Crochet Star Pattern.. it’s been a while since I created one, but I’m finally getting settled in the new home, baby number 3 is here and growing, and between all the chores I can squeeze a few minutes for myself and create again.
You can use this star in so many ways. Use them as an applique, maybe as fun coasters. How about creating many starts and decorating the nursery or kids room?
Well, I’m sure you came here for the pattern and tutorial, and not to read about why I’ve been absent here and there, so to let’s get to the details of the Crochet Star Pattern ;D
- 1 inch = 4 stitches
- ch = Chain Stitch (Chain stitch video tutorial)
- sc = Single Crochet Stitch (Single Crochet stitch video tutorial)
- 2 sctog = 2 Single Crochet Together
- sl st = Slip Stitch

First Star Arm – Now we stop working rounds and start working back and forth in rows (Check video for more instructions)
row 1: Sc in next 8 st. (Leave all remaining stitches untouched – they will be the next arms – If unsure watch video)
row 2: Ch 1. Sc in each st.
row 3: Ch 1. 2sctog. sc in next 4 st. 2sctog
row 4:Ch 1. Sc in each st.
row 5:Ch 1. 2sctog. sc in next 2 st. 2sctog
row 6:Ch 1. Sc in each st.
row 7:Ch 1. 2sctog twice
row 8:Ch 1. Sc in each st.
row 9:Ch 1. 2sctog.
– Fasten Off and close.
Second to Fifth arms:
Join your yarn at the end of the first arm. Repeat pattern for first arm until you have five arms and form your star.
Don’t Fasten off on the fifth arm.
Work a row of sc around the star to clean the edge. At the top of each arm make a ch 1 to help you go to the opposite side.
* If you need any help, don’t forget to watch the video. Maybe it will be easier to follow the pattern and the video instructions to understand the steps.
