very important tutorial back up on that site without it being rejected, I started playing around with different flower ideas and then happened upon this star. I normally don't do appliques and I'm not familiar with the masses of them out there so I'm not sure if there's already one out there with 6 points that is worked right from the magic circle itself.
If you need help with the magic circle, also known as the adjustable loop or adjustable ring then click here for the video
I made two sizes one worked with a chain of 4 and one worked with a chain of 3. The longer chain gives you the longer petal or star arm. You can give the center a different color as well
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Smaller Star made with one color: Click here for the video on how to make the petals/star arms
1) magic circle with 6st (6)
2) sc into the first st of the round then chain 3, sl st the 2nd ch from the hook, dc next ch then dc into the st you started this round with.
Now repeat this sequence for next 5st.
Finish off the last petal or star arm with a sl st into the first st you started with. Weave all the yarn tail ends in.
|here the first petal or star arm is done and now starting the 2nd one|
if you want a larger star then do everything as instructed above but chain 4 instead of 3
Smaller Star with a different color in the center:
1) with color A make a magic circle with 6st (6)
2) go into the first st of the round and pull your yarn through just like you do to start a single crochet, leave those 2 loops on your hook and pull color B through those 2 loops, now chain 3. Follow all the steps as stated above.. this first petal base will feel a bit loose so just keep the yarn tails held tight until you are done with this first petal. Once you are done with all 6 petals then knot off those color changes and then weave your ends in.
And that's it! You have a 6 point star or the start to a pretty flower :)
