Today is June 14th! It’s my birthday! AND it’s a national holiday: Flag Day! I was actually due to be born on the 4th of July but ended up entering this world a few weeks early. Either way, it seems as thought I was destined to have a patriotic birthday 🙂 So I am celebrating with some patriotic crocheted stars. Of course you could make these in any color you want but I think they would be fun for your 4th of July celebration. I can see these as table decorations, bunting, keychains, hat appliqués and more!
– Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice (worsted weight) yarn in Red, White and Blue
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Patriotic Crocheted Stars Pattern:
starting with color A
Magic ring, chain 1, make 10 SC in magic ring, join to first SC (10 SC)
change to color B
Round 2: Chain 1, 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next stitch, repeat around, join to first SC (15 SC)
change to color C
Round 3: Chain 5, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next stitch, DC in next, TR in next. Now you have made one of the points of the star. Skip two stitches and join with a slip stitch. Now Chain 5 and repeat process until you have all 5 points.
Round 4: SC around the edges of all 5 points. Slip Stitch over the first slip stitches you made when you get to those points. It also helps to make two SC at the top of each point. Fasten off and weave in ends (or make your life easier by just tying them in a knot like I did).
with color A
Surface Slip Stitch around the inside edge of the star.
Surface Slip Stitch in a circle around the edge of your center.
Weave in remaining ends.
