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.

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.
