I like stars… But I struggled to find a pattern I liked. So I had a go at my own.
I’ve written it in US terms, but for UK terms, just substitute SC (single crochet) for DC (double crochet).
Starting: Chain 2, 6sc in 1st ch (6sc)
Do not join or turn at this point, just continue to work in a spiral, using a stitch marker if required.
Row 2: 2sc in each sc (12sc)
Row 3: 1sc, 2sc in next sc (repeat around) (18 sc)
Row 4: 2sc, 2sc in next sc (repeat around) (24 sc)
Row 5: 3sc, 2sc in next sc (repeat around) (30 sc)
Row 6: 6sc, turn
Rows 7 & 8: repeat row 6
Row 9: Sc, 2 x 2sctog, sc, turn
Rows 10 & 11: 4sc, turn
Row 11: 2 x 2sctog, turn
Row 12: 2sc
Row 13: 2sctog
Row 14: sc
Slip stitch down opposite side of point, back to original circle, repeat from row 6, 4 more times.
I made a baby star, using the same pattern and some crochet thread:
