Foundation: Make a magic ring.
Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc here and throughout), 2 dc, ch3, *3 dc, chain 3. Repeat from * 3 times for a total of 5 dc clusters. Join with sl st to top of starting chain.
Round 2: Skip 3 and 3 dc and ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3dc, join in the next 3 ch space with sc, next 3dc, ch3, 3dc, repeat this for another 3 times. Join with sl st.
Round 3: Sc in all the round 2 stitches in order to give a bordered look.
Tighten up your first tail end so that your magic loop closes up tightly. Weave in both your tail ends.
Decorate the star with accessories.
If you want to really firm up your stars for a hanging decoration or garland, spray with fabric stiffener while pinned out and leave to dry.
