I would LOVE to see how creative you all are so please remember to TAG me on social media #lisaauchcrochet 

This crochet star can be used to make a delightful colorful crochet bunting garland to decorate your indoor or outdoor space or as we used it to decorate around the gazebo poles for a recent garden party. I also made 2 star Pentagons, (but I went down to dc and single crochet stitches)  and sewed them together, and made a tassel to turn it into a crochet windspinner for the garden too 

This red white and blue star garland was a LAST minute plea from the organizers of a street party the community was having so I literally had 1 day to make something colourful in crochet and to hang from the gazebo! I was going to make the more traditional bunting of the triangle flags, however, I WAS really pushed for time, So I came up with these cute hybrid granny square stars! 

They are not just EASY to crochet but the stars are a real QUICK crochet project to sit and make up, and once you have made one or 2 the pattern is so easy to memorize, your off! 

I have a Star Amigurumi Plush pattern available for free on my website too.

Once enough crochet stars are made Simply create a very long chain and slip the crochet stars onto it as you work it (I did NOT fasten in position so that by the time the chain length was wrapped around the poles of the gazebo, the stars could be moved around easier into position, but you could easily work a chain around the chain 4 space where you wish the stars to sit. ) 

Crochet 5 Point STAR Pattern 

slst, slip into the stitch to join

TrC - treble crochet 

chsp- chain space 

For THE Red white and Blue star pattern I used US terms.  IF I was making a bag or cardigan I think I would drop down a stitch, replacing (Trcrochet with dc) (Dc with single crochet) but KEEPing the chain spaces as is, to make it a bit tighter. 

Double knit Yarn in RED, White and Blue and a 4.5 mm hook. 

TO START : Using the first color 

ROUND 1: Chain 5, also Counts as the first TrC, Working All the NEXT stitches INTO THE first chain, make a further 2TrC  *chain 4, 3TrC into the ring* repeat from * to * 3 more times, slip to the 4th chain at the start to join, FASTEN OFF, Pull the long tail tight to close. (I weave in ends as I go it makes it super easy at the end)

I find lightly spraying with water, and then pinning onto a blocking board helps to shape the star. Make as many as you wish for your crochet project.
