Best Yarn for a Crochet Star

I recommend Cotton Yarn for best results. Cotton is durable and easy to wash and dry, and also holds its shape well. I used a fingering weight cotton yarn to make my little stars but use whatever yarn you have in your stash. These cute crochet stars are a great way to use up any cotton yarn leftovers you have around!

You can make make them as large or small as you want by using a different weight yarn and crochet hook.

You can stiffen your stars by soaking in diluted PVA Glue and leave to dry.
