Great for a holiday, patriotic-themed or baby shower projects, our crochet star is a quick and easy way to embellish your project that needs a finishing touch.

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.
