Tiny Stars Pattern

I have a quick free pattern for you today – the Tiny Stars pattern!Tiny Stars - Free Crochet Pattern by Vivid Kreations.

I designed these tiny stars ages ago and forgot about them until recently when I was hunting through my supplies and came across them. It took a bit of trial and error to get a nice star shape with only one round but I think these are the clear winner. Check out my Instagram for a pic of the various trials.

And as an added bonus I’ve included the Teeny Tiny Stars pattern. They can be blocked into a star shape or work nicely as a tiny flower.

So without further ado, how to make the tiny stars.

Tadaa! Tiny Star is done. Just give it a block to really make those points pointy. I found that even just squeezing the points between my fingers helped make them pointier.

I made these tiny stars in a range of different yarns, different sizes and fibre content, so that you can see how they work in a few different things. I personally think that 100% cotton gives the truest star shape, but even the squishier cotton blends and acrylic yarn give a nice end results.
