How to Crochet a Simple 5 Point Star



A fun and fast make for applique, wizards robes, witches wands, Fairy Godmother's wands and of course our very own Winter Fir Teacosy.


This video tutorial shows how to create a simple 5 pointed star, starfish or sunburst. The patterns is written below and the video walks you through the process with both US and UK terms. I also show how to use a Magic Loop to cast on as an added bonus.


As the amount of yarn used is small this is an excellent scrap yarn project. If you don't already​ collect your scraps please start as it can be a really economial way to make things in the future.

Note: Links in the What I Used box below are affiliate links, no cost to you if used and I do really appreciate the support those extra pennies provide.
