Crochet Star - easy pattern

 
 
Well hello everyone!
 
I hope you had a lovely, relaxed weekend. We've been pretty busy in our household, making some new decorations. Luckily the tree has been set up for weeks now so all the mayhem around it subsided, and now we are concentrating on little finishing details.
 
I made these to use as appliques and for gift wrapping - the pattern is so easy I couldn't resist not posting it here.
 
So, for these stars I used sport yarn and 1,9 mm hook.
They are worked in just one easy round.
 
First, chain 7. You need 4 stitches for the body (arm) and 3 for the picot. For the picot sl st in the third st from hook.
 


Here you can see the picot made.



Next, chain 4 stitches for the other side (arm) and slip stitch it with the beginning chain of the first arm.


Like this. The first one is made. Now we are going to make 4 more. Repeat the pattern: chain 7, sl stitch in the 3rd st from hk to make a picot, chain 4 more, sl st it in the first chain of the arm.

 


 
When you make all 5 of them, join the last arm with the first by making a sl st.


 
Cut yarn, tie a knot to secure it and weave the ends.




Enjoy it :)
