Let’s continue today with geometrical forms and crochet a five-pointed star, which is a bit more challenging than crochet a triangle. Five-pointed star could also be a decor element on its own or be used in a composition with other items. Experiment with various sizes and create a Christmas tree using a triangle and a small star at the top of it. Enjoy crocheting.
