Cute Star Crochet Pattern - Free!

Updated on March 6, 2017

Crochet two cute stars with this easy crochet pattern! You can use them for many projects: sew them on amigurumi, hats, scarves or any other crocheted project. They also make a nice keychain if you make a little strap for them. The included diagram makes it easy to crochet these cute stars with any yarn!

The first star is tiny; the second star is a bit bigger, so try them both to see which one fits your project best. To crochet these stars, you start with a magic ring. If you have never created a magic ring before, please check the video underneath the two star crochet patterns on this page.

Magic Ring

The Magic Ring (or Adjustable Ring) is used when crocheting in rounds. The advantages of using the Magic Ring is that once tightened, it leaves no hole in the center of your work.

Check the video's below to see how you make a magic ring.

On the first video, you can see how you make a magic ring if you are right handed.

The second video was made for left-handed crocheters.

Star Project

You can sew your stars on many crocheted or knitted projects.

If you use sewing thread you could also sew it on fabric!

Here is an example of the stars sewn on an elephant amigurumi, very cute!
