Regards! As you know, I always try to make knitted things to my son according to his tastes, but this star was a direct request from him, one day he came and told me Mommy make me a fabric star, he calls "fabric dolls ” to the amigurumis I was surprised that he made that request out of nowhere so I got to work and decided to make him a yellow star with little eyes like the Mario Bros star because I know he likes to watch Mario videos on the computer and I would recognize his image.
There are several ways to crochet stars, but this is the technique or the way that I like the most, although it seems like a very basic figure, it has its details because even drawing a five-pointed star freehand is complicated because all the peaks must be the same. Without further ado I share the instructions that you can apply to make stars for any occasion or purpose.

For the central part of the star you have to make two equal circles. Since the star has 5 peaks, each circle starts with 5 single crochets in a ring. Work 5 increases for five rounds to obtain 30 stitches as follows:1 Round: 5 increases. Total stitches: 152 Round: 1 Single crochet, 1 increase, repeat. Total stitches: 153 Round: 2 Single crochet, 1 increase, repeat. Total stitches: 204 Round: 3 Single crochet, 1 increase, repeat. Total stitches: 255 Round: 4 Single crochet, 1 increase, repeat. Total stitches: 30
For the peaks or points of the stars, both circles must be joined in the following way:1 Round: To make a point, knit 6 single crochets from one of the circles and 6 single crochet from the other circle. Total stitches: 122 Row: 4 single crochets, 1 decrease, repeat. Total stitches: 103 Row: 3 single crochets, 1 decrease, repeat. Total stitches: 84 Round: 2 single crochets, 1 decrease, repeat. Total stitches: 65 Round: 1 single crochet, 1 decrease, repeat. Total stitches: 4Close with a decrease and hide the strand inside the fabric.Repeat the procedure for each peak, it is necessary to fill with fiber before finishing the last peak.

When filling and finishing the last beak, sew the small holes that are seen between the peaks with the same thread to achieve a better appearance. With a sewing needle and black and white thread, embroider the eyes in the center of the circle.
