Picot Crochet Star Pattern

This crochet star pattern is worked in two rounds and has four points, each with a picot on top:

Four point crochet star in white thread

I worked the star in size 10 cotton thread with a 1.75 mm hook. It measures 1½"/3½ cm across.

My star also looks like a cross, doesn't it? I think you could use this piece either as an appliqué or as an ornament. It's ever so easy and won't take you more than a few minutes to complete.

Tip: as you crochet Round 1, work your stitches over the tail end to save time later :)

Here's the pattern in both US and UK terminology:

US Terms

Round 1 - Center Circle: ch 2, 8 sc into 2nd ch from hook, join with a ss into 1st sc. We will join into this ss at the end.

Round 2 - Points: (ch 8, ss into 6th ch from hook, ch 3, ss into each of next 2 stitches on circle) 3 times.

Ch 8, ss into 6th ch from hook, ch 3, ss into next stitch on circle, ss into joining ss from last round.

Weave this tail end to the back through the same stitch you just slip-stitched into, then weave in securely.
