Free Crochet Pattern...Tiny One Round Stars!


Using just a bit of yarn, these fun little stars work up super fast in just one round! Make up a few for a garland or create a shower of them for a window. Tuck one or two in a loved one's lunch or jacket pocket. A fabulous beginner project to learn an array of stitches!

Mix them up with tiny hearts too!

Tiny One Round Hearts Pattern

Materials: 

  • 5.0mm (H) hook 
  • Cheerful yarn in color(s) of your choice (I used worsted weight) 
  • Tapestry needle 
Abbreviations: 
  • ch: Chain 
  • sl st: Slip Stitch 
  • tr: Treble Crochet 
Instructions:
Foundation: Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: First point—[tr, ch 1, sl st] repeat four more times for a total of five star points.


Here's a video to show you how to crochet a star stitch by stitch:


Finishing:
Fasten off, weave in ends and you're all finished. Note: because the star is so tiny, you may have to shape it just a bit.

Top Secret...not really!



Usually when I show something on the needles, it is to show a secret sneak peek.  But this time I want you all to know due to popular demand, I am working on the baby bear hat in expanded sizing...I've sent the sizing to a few of you individually already, but I'm going to put it on the site so everyone can see... coming soon!!!


Also...If you notice the DPNs...I am planning to add instructions for both flat and in the round for the expanded sizing--plus, added directions for a circularly knit hat on the original pattern too...stay tuned, more to come!!!

Android Anyone?

Just got this little guy off the needles, the Android robot!  His eyes are some flat little black buttons found at the fabric store.  I had to be especially neat and careful when doing the finish work on this one...it really made all the difference to get everything looking just right.


Here's the pattern on Ravelry:
Android Love Pattern

PS If knitting this for a young child, be sure to stitch on eyes instead of buttons.
