5 Little Monsters: Star- Mini Amigurumi Advent Day 17

Star- Mini Amigurumi Advent Day 17

 -This post may contain affiliate links-

For Day 17 of the Mini Amigurumi Advent I chose one to make one of the most classic Christmas symbols of all, the Star. 

The Star is a traditional 5 pointed star, about 4 inches across. 

Like all of the projects in this series it is worked in a stuffed 3D shape, amigurumi style. The construction is a little different than the rest of the amigurumi. Instead of making pieces and sewing them together you will start with 2 small circles that make the centers of the star, then crochet the points onto the centers to make the 3D shape. Stitch markers are a big help when it comes to keeping track of the stitches in this project. 

Just like the others, I added a little smiley face to the center of the star using small safety eyes and a little embroidered mouth. 

How to Crochet an Amigurumi Star

Finished Size: 4" across

You will need:


Star Centers

Make 2 with yellow yarn, beginning with magic ring

Round 1: in mr, ch 1, 5 sc (5 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in each st (10 sc)
Round 3: [2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st] repeat around (15 sc)
Round 4: [2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 2 sts] repeat around (20 sc)
Round 5: [2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 3 sts] repeat around (25 sc)

On one circle add the safety eyes and embroider a mouth

Place both circles together, right sides out, and insert a stitch marker in every 5th stitch through both layers

Star Points

Continue working with yellow yarn, you will work through both layer in each of the stitches with a stitch marker, and in one layer between markers. Each stitch marked with a stitch marker will be worked in twice (the stitch maker is the "valley" between the two points)

Round 1: start in one of the stitch marker stitches, sc through both layers in the st with the stitch marker, sc through 1 layer in the next 4, sc through both layer of next st (with stitch marker), turn so you are working along the other side, 1 sc in the next 4 sts working through 1 layer (10 sc)
Round 2: [sc2tog, 1 sc in next 3 sts] repeat (8 sc)
Round 3: [sc2tog, 1 sc in next 2 sts] repeat (6 sc)
Round 4: [sc2tog, 1 sc in next st] repeat (4 sc)

Finish off and weave in end, stuff the points as you work

Repeat the point 4 more times, each time starting in the second marked stitch of the point before
