crochet star pattern

by izabela

for a crochet star?

maybe it is not the perfect pattern, but here it is:

eight beam crochet star

  1. ch 4
  2. dc 23 in 3rd ch from the hook, join with a sl st to the top stitch of starting chain to form a circle
  3. *ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next one, hdc in next, dc in last, join with a sl st to the 3rd stitch on the circle, ch 9, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch, hdc in next 2 ch, dc in next 3 ch, join with the sl st to the 3rd st on the circle* repeat from * to *  3 more times

finished eight beam star

fasten off, hide in loose ends, hang it on about 6 inches long thread

i used hemp yarn for this project and the hook size 2.7, but it can be made in different yarns so be inventive and experiment as much as you like

the creation may bend and swirl a little but if you wet it and then hold it with pins on the flat surface and even better if you use some sort of stiffener (starch for example) – it will stay in the desired shape 🙂

 

please remember to give a credit if you share this pattern as that is only one thing i am asking for
