Free Crochet Pattern - Mini Crochet Stars | Use these simple stars for a variety of crochet projects. Very simple to make!

This week has been exciting!
For a few weeks now, I have been working to prepare because I knew life would be more busy than usual. 
Creativity is interesting, it’s like a muscle. It is stronger when you use it often. I have be practicing brainstorming sessions, which are difficult if you don’t do them often. The first few were very frustrating, and had no positive results. I have been getting better, though. Several ideas that use stars have come to me, but before I share them, I needed to write a very simple star pattern. These mini crochet stars will be perfect for the ideas I’m envisioning.

But first, I want to introduce you to our new family member! As soon as we brought this guy home, I was dying to introduce him to you!

His name is Goose, and he is a yellow Labrador with greenish-brown eyes. He is incredibly sweet and very, very smart. We’ve had him for 4 days, and he is already fetching, sleeping comfortable and happily in his crate, and using his designated potty corner of the yard. We are smitten, and The Boy is in heaven with his new puppy.

I knew getting a puppy would be LOTS of work, so I have been working on getting some projects and patterns finished for you. These mini crochet stars are very simple, and there is a wealth of projects to use them for. You can use any hook and yarn, but I used 100% Cotton Dishie by KnitPicks.
Dishie is a lovely cotton yarn that works up nicely and doesn’t make my fingers raw to work with it.

P.S. I told myself I would never be that pet-parent who puts clothes and accessories on a dog, but I am already brainstorming ideas for him! Do you crochet for your pets?

Happy crocheting!
