Googly Eye Star Keyring

I couldn’t resist getting the googly eyes out for this one. Adding a keyring blank is super easy, you just thread it onto your yarn before you start the pattern, and then slide it onto your hook when you get to the end of one of the points in the final round.

These make brilliant homemade crochet stocking fillers. You can get both the keyring blanks and the self adhesive googly eyes very cheaply from Amazon. I think they make great party favours too, after all who doesn’t see them and find them cute and fun.

The biggest question is, are these little stars singing or are they surprised? What do you think?

Star Applique

Applique motifs can take a simple project and make it look simply stunning. They take a nice looking crochet piece and turn it into an amazing creation, just by sewing on a little motif or two.

Here I sewed 3 stars onto a simple corner to corner baby comforter that I made using a Caron Cake in the colourway Rainbow Sprinkles. Caron Cakes are an Aran weight yarn that calls for a 5mm hook. I changed colours for the final round of the star motif pattern to get that contrasting edging on the stars. The stars are sewn on with cotton thread with the stitches hidden on the underside of each star. 

Star Necklace

How about turning your star into a piece of jewellery?

Here I attached a silver plated jump ring into the middle sc at the end of one of the points of the star, and then threaded it onto a silver snake chain (my favourite type of necklace chain). A brilliant way of creating a unique piece of crochet jewellery that will be admired by all. I used cotton thread to make this star, but you could use embroidery thread to make the star even smaller and less stiff.

There’s no reason that you couldn’t also turn your star motif into earrings or even a bracelet.

Star Bookmark

I love these Star Bookmarks. They are so simple to make by sewing a jumbo sized paperclip to the back of the  star motif. I sew the middle and the bottom of the star onto the jumbo paperclip in order to stop the star from flopping about and properly securing it. I do this by using the start and end tails of yarn from each star to reduce the amount of sewing involved.

You will never loose your book place again with these super cute markers, and you could make them doubly cute with some googly eyes too.

.This simple star crochet pattern has 5 points, and is made in a single piece. This pattern would be easy to turn into a six pointed star if you prefer by adding an extra repeat in round 1.


  • Ch = Chain
  • Slst = Slip Stitch
  • Sc = Single Crochet
  • Hdc = Half Double Crochet
  • Dc = Double Crochet
  • Htr = Half Treble Crochet


Round 1. Make a magic circle, then chain 2 (this chain doesn’t count as a stitch) *make 3 hdc into the loop and then chain 1* repeat between *and* until you have 5 sets of repeats (15 hdc in total). Finish the round by making a slst into the first hdc.

Round 2. Turn your work over and slst into the chain 1 space immediately to the left.

Starting your star

Now we will start making the Stars points. *Chain 5, then in the 2nd chain from your hook make a sc. Make a hdc into the next chain, then make a dc in the next chain, and then finally a htr into the final chain. Make a slst into the next chain 1 space to finish the point.*

The chain 1 space to work into

Repeat between *and* until you have 5 points and have made a slst into the beginning ch1 space.

Finishing your points

Round 3. *In the chain that you worked the htr, make a sc. 

The space to start in

Make a sc into the bottom of each stitch. Into the top of the sc at the tip of the point, make 3sc in the same stitch like in the picture below.

Working around the point

Sc in each of the next 3 stitches. Then make a slst into the slst of the row below* 

Placing your slst

repeat between *and* until all 5 points have been worked around and have made a slst into the beginning slst.

Your completed star

You have now finished your star and can either cut off and weave in your ends, or leave your tails in order to sew them onto your jumbo paperclips or keyrings if needed. Once joined onto your accessories, then you can finish weaving in your ends. 

A great way to switch up your stars a little is to change your yarn colour for the final round.
