Hello friends! The Dreamy Crochet Star is a sweet little motif that contains only 4 rounds and works up in about 15 minutes. Use it for bunting, as an applique or attach some ribbon to turn it into an ornament. They’re super cute and as of August 18th, 2022, the pattern has received a refreshing update!

As of August 18th, 2022, this pattern has been updated! A few stitches have been changed to create a more defined star shape. The pattern layout has also been updated to be consistent with my resent designs. Due to the stitch adjustments, I had this pattern re-tested to ensure it worked up as it should. Updated tester photos can be found at the end of the pattern.

This project in these photos uses Dishie cotton yarn from WeCrochet. It’s incredibly soft and comes in some amazing shades! You can read my yarn review by click the photo below. Haven’t ordered from WeCrochet before? I have a review for that too!

In the next CH 2 space, make 1 SC, 1 SS, 1 SC. *Place 1 FPDC around each of the next 2 DC stitches. In the next CH 2 space, make 1 SC, 1 SS, 1 SC*. Repeat from * to * 3 more times.
