I designed this Pentagon Star Crochet Motif back in November 2019 using the yarn I received from the Posh Yarn Advent Swap. I made a few motifs but never really got into it and the stars and mini skeins of yarn remained in a shoe box for almost a year. Then I came across a challenge on Instagram which encouraged you to work on a crochet blanket for 21 days, under the hashtag #21daycrochetchallenge. I decided to work on this advent star blanket and I’m really pleased I did because it revived my enthusiasm for it and I also worked out how I was going to join them with an additional diamond shaped motif. I will show you how to do that in a future post! In the mean time, I have written up the pattern and made a comprehensive YouTube video tutorial.
I don’t think this is a particularly easy pattern – probably best suited to a confident crocheter or at least a crafter that is happy to try things that might push their skills a little. I have therefore marked this as an Intermediate pattern.
Additionally, this pattern has not been tested so please do let me know if you have any problems.

4ply/Fingering yarn in 2 colours. Natural fibers work best.
