Voila! C'est fini! And here's the tutorial. To get a nice printed version, click on the button at the bottom of the post.
Step 1: Chain 3, slip stitch to form a ring, then chain 2 (counts as first single crochet).
Step 2: Work 9 single crochets into the ring for 10 single crochets total, counting that first chain 2. Then, chain 2 to start the first star point.
Step 3: In the space just next to the chain 2, work a single crochet. Then, chain 3, which serves as the point tip.
Step 4: Finish the first star point by crocheting another 2 single crochets. Then, skip the space after that and start another point – 2 single crochets, chain 3, 2 single crochets.
Step 5: Continue around the circle until you've completed 5 points. Then, slip stitch to the top of the beginning chain 2 to finish. You're done!
You can make these mini stars bigger by changing your hook size or changing up the stitch to a half double or double crochet, or a combo of both!
