How to Crochet a Crescent & Star

How to Crochet a Crescent & Star

Are you a crocheter who is searching for a nice simple pattern for a crescent moon and star but all the patterns you find for free are simply not good enough? Well search no more, here is a pattern that allows you to alter the size of both the moon and star with ease. Get your hook and get ready … it only take minutes to complete!

NOTES Before You Begin

*Be sure to use the same size hook for both appliques (unless you want the proportions to be different).

*Using a larger hook than what is mentioned in this pattern will increase the size of the appliques.

*Using a smaller hook and thinner yarn that what is mentioned in this pattern will decrease the size of the appliques.

*You will need to block and/or shape the appliques when done to ensure the shapes are proper and to your liking. Let’s get started.

STAR

G hook – worsted weight yarn (use this combination or hook and yarn to get medium sized appliques like shown in the picture above)

Round 1: start with a slip circle, ch1, 9sc inside the circle, pull tight, slip stitch in first sc

Point 1: ch3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next st, hdc in next st, you are now back at the circle you started from, skip 1 sc, sl st in next st

Repeat instructions for Point 1 for the next 4 points, finish off and weave in the tail.

Shape the 5 points so they stand amd point evenly around the starting circle. Block if needed/desired.

CRESCENT

G hook, worsted weight yarn

chain 15, turn

Row 1: sk first ch, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, hdc in next ch, 2dc in each of the next 3 chs, 2tr in next ch,  2dc in each of the next 3 chs, hdc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in next ch, sl st in last ch, turn
