7 Point Star




scraps of worsted weight  yarn, any fiber
crochet hook 3.5 mm, optionally one stitch marker
yarn needle, embroidery floss or glue, small buttons, beads

Abbreviations:
ch-chain
st, sts-stitch, stitches
sl st-slip stitch
sc-single crochet
hdc-half double crochet
blo-back loop only

Special stitches:
star point - working in blo of indicated st (sc, hdc, ch3, sc in back bump of 3rd ch from hook, hdc, sc)

My finished stars are about 3 in across.




Star pattern

NOTE: beginning ch1 sts are not included in st count and you don't join rounds in them

Round 1
In adjustable ring: ch1, 7 sc, join with sl st in 1st sc of round [7 sc]



Round 2
ch1, 2sc in next st and in each st around, join with sl st in first sc of round [14 sc]



Round 3
ch1, *2sc in next st, 1 sc in next st* 7 times, join with sl st in 1st sc of round [21 sc]



Round 4

NOTE: star points are worked in blo, slip sts in both loops

ch1, place marker in chain just made,  *sl st in next st, star point in next st, sl st in next st* 7 times, fasten off in this manner:
-cut about 2.5 in of yarn, pull it all the way through the last stitch
-insert hook from back to front in marked ch, pull yarn through it to the back of your star, remove marker
-weave yarn ends in with a needle







You can add a loop for hanging you starlet between any two points working a chain of desired lenght between slip stitches, or simply pull a separate piece of yarn through a picot.




Embellish your stars with buttons, tiny jingle bells and beads. Block lightly just with your fingers. You may take two stars and sew them together, stuffing very lightly with fiberfill for a thicker star that will not curl (but they don't curl that much, anyway)
Enjoy stargazing , no telescope needed :)

    1. Ten blo nie bardzo wyszedl mi :( mam gruba welne oraz bardzo cienki kordonek stad pewnie ani jedno ani drugie nie najlepsze oraz najmniej potrafie szydelkowac. Tymczasem moja Mama jest mistrzynia szydelka i teraz zaluje, ze nie nauczylam sie od niej wiecej. Ja zawsze wolalam druty. U nas sniegu ani widac i gdyby nie swiatelka byloby szaro i buro. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.

    2. Można normalnie, przez obie pętelki. Raczej z wełny niz z kordonka, ja próbowałam i wyszło byle jak . Śnieg mamy, ale mniej niż zapowiadali, szkoda,że jest szaro i ciemno.

  3. I love the stars, Marta! I love them with buttons, and I love them with colorful centers, and I love them plain. ;^) I'm going to save a link to this page so I can find it come Christmas time when I will want to make some.
