About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add a finishing touch to your patriotic or star-themed project, you’re in the right place. These crochet stars can be sewn directly to any project for a little extra cuteness.

With this project you’ll crochet a basic pentagon and learn how to add the star points in just two rounds, a concept that cab be used to create other shapes.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to walk you through the entire process.

Recommended Supplies


  • Approx 6 yds; Any medium weight yarn (Pictured: Bernat Satin; admiral, crimson and heather gray mist)
  • 5 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
