In looking for examples of 5 pointed stars I found this cute star designed by Leonie Morgan as a Christmas star. It and more lovely crochet items can be found on her website: wool and hook.
She recommends that you use light worsted/DK weight yarn or wool and a G - 6 hook/4mm. (I used that for the red and silver stars and a #4 medium weight and a larger hook for the grey star on bottom.)
Stitches Used in This Project:
sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
picot - made in this way: ch 3, sl in top of last sc worked
Chain 4 and join to form a circle.
Round 1: In the ring work, (ch1, sc, ch2) counts as first dc, 2 dc, * ch2, 3dc. Rep * three times, ending with ch 2. Now join to the top of the first dc made. You should have 5 dc groups and 5 ch2 spaces.
Round 2: sl st in next dc. *Skip next dc, in ch2sp work (3dc, ch2, 3dc). Skip next dc, sl st in next dc. Rep * around.
Round 3: Sl st into next dc, ch 1 and sc in same stitch. Sc in next two dc. * In ch2sp work (2sc, picot, sc), sc in next three dcs, sl st in sl st of previous round. Sc in next three dc. Repeat * three times. (2sc, picot, sc) in ch2sp, sc in next three dc. Sl st in sl st of previous round.
Weave in the ends. In order for the star to keep its shape, you can wash and pin to shape. If you want the the star to hang as an ornament or other decoration such as a garland, spray with laundry starch and leave until completely dry.
Here is one example of how to make a five pointed, crocheted star. This one is based on the instructions posted on this site several years ago. I wanted to give it a try and add some photos of my finished stars.
Total Time: 5+ minutes per star
I wanted to post a few examples of five pointed, crochet stars. Thus far I have reworked one posted some time ago by one of our members and one taken from the Wool and Hook website. Today I am sharing an nifty star pattern designed by Melissa Masterton. Melissa has a lovely blog site where you can find many patterns and crochet items: Ruby and Custard. She graciously allowed us to post her pattern to share with our members.
I have only been able to make a few stars. I am hoping in the coming months to use them to craft a project for my home. I am toying with a few ideas and hopefully will be able to share the project here when it is completed. But first the stars, perhaps you will be inspired.
I followed Melissa's lead and made my ring using "the magic ring" technique.

How do I crochet a 5 point star?
By dee307 from West Bend, WI
This is a wonderful site that gives you more free patterns than you will ever need. The above link is for the five point stars but this one is for the site itself. Good Luck!
Here's the easiest pattern I've found and the stars turn out beautifully.
Ch 3. Work 10 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Join.
*Ch 5. Sl St in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in next ch. Hdc in next ch, Dc in next ch. Sk 1 hdc of beg ring and join in next hdc.* (First point made)
Rep * to * 4 more times to make the last 4 points.
I just made a project calling for 12 stars and it took me less than an hour to make all 12.
