Star Motif Pattern

You can use this pattern for so many different things.  You can connect them to make a scarf by single crocheting along the edging, or you can use the join-as-you-go method to create an afghan!  I was looking for a star motif pattern and just could not find anything that I liked, so I did it myself.

Materials:

  • 2  colors worsted weight yarn
  • Size I Crochet hook.

Gauge:  Not critical, but you can increase or decrease the hook size if you want a larger or smaller star.  This one measures about 7 inches from the tip of the left arm to the tip of the right arm.

Round 1: With first color,  ch 5, join with sl st in first ch to form a loop,  ch 1, 25 sc in loop, join with sl st to first sc.

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, hdc in next sc, [dc, ch1, dc] in next sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc, * sc in next sc, hdc in next sc, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from* three times more, join with sl st to first sc, finish off.

Round 3: Join next color with sc in first hdc of any section, hdc in next st, [2dc, ch2, 2 dc] in ch 1 sp, hdc in next st, sc in next st, skip next 2 sc, * sc in next st, hdc in next st [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in ch 1 sp, hdc in next st, sc in next st, skip next 2 sc, repeat from * 3 times more, join with sl st to first sc.
