How to Crochet a Simple Star

​A fun and fast make for applique, wizards robes, witches wands, Fairy Godmother's wands and of course our very own Winter Fir Teacosy.

This  video tutorial shows how to create a simple 5 pointed star, starfish or sunburst.  The patterns is written below and the video walks you through the process with both US and UK terms.  I also show how to use a Magic Loop to cast on as an added bonus.

As the amount of yarn used is small this is an excellent scrap yarn project.  If you don't already​y collect your scraps please start as it can be a really economial way to make things in the future.

Note:  Links in the What I Used box below are affiliate links, no cost to you if used and I do really appreciate the support those extra pennies provide.
