Full Answer

  1. Decide on the length

    Decide how long the star is going to be. Crochet a chain this long plus two additional chains.

  2. Start the next row

    Insert the crochet hook through the second chain down. Draw a loop of yarn through this chain. Continue this process for four more loops. The crochet hook should have five loops on it at the end.

  3. Close the loops

    Loop the yarn over the end of the crochet hook. Draw this loop through all five loops on the hook. Use a chain stitch to close the star.

  4. Start the next star

    Insert the crochet hook into the chain used to close the first star. Wrap the yarn over the hook. Draw the yarn through for a slip stitch.

  5. Make loops for the star

    Insert the crochet hook through the stitch through which the previous star finished. Hook the yarn over, and pull it through. Continue drawing loops of yarn through the next stitches three more times for a total of five loops on the hook.

  6. Close the star

    Wrap the yarn over the end of the hook, and draw it through all the loops. Close the star with a chain stitch. Repeat the above procedure for additional stars.
