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.
Crochet materials and tools:
<> Crochet hook 5 mm (H)
<> Bernant Handicrafter (4ply) – 100% cotton, 50 grams – French blue color.
Common abbreviations of crochet stitches:
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
st – stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet: yarn over twice, insert the hook in the work, yo and draw the yarn through work only, yo and draw through first 2 loops, yo and draw through the last 2 loops.
tr – treble: yarn over twice, insert the hook in the work, yo and draw the yarn through work only, yo and draw through the first 2 loops, yo and draw through next 2 loops and yo again and draw through last 2 loops.
Crochet five point star:
Make adjustable ring. Ch 3, 14 dc into the ring, join with sl st – pull tail to close ring.
*Ch 6, sc in the 3d ch from hook, hdc in the next ch, dc in the next ch, tc in the next ch, skip next dc on the 1st Row, sl st in the next dc, repeat from * to get in total 5 points. Cut the yarn and weave in ends.
I’m trying to crochet a 4pointed star and I’m stuck at the end of round 2 can you help me
Hi Jennifer. Sure I can help you
Just to let you know I’m way past 70 yrs and just trying to crochet for the first time. I so love the step by step instructions. you have. I tried the 5 point star but don’t know what I did wrong ,I keep coming up with 6 points.Maybe you can help,,please Jeanette
Hi Jeanette. I was so happy and surprised at the same time to see your comment. I would like to help you but do not know how. Have you followed this video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4anMU8diSBc&t=2s. If you think it is so fast there is a playback speed button in the left corner that will slow down the speed and you can clearly watch what I am doing. Did you get 15 sts after the first round? I can suggest also that you join not into the 3d chain when you finish crocheting the first row. Please let me know if you have already found oud the mistake. Ann
