I originally made this Starfish back in 2019 and had it on my old website. That year I wrote up so many new beach and ocean themed patterns as I was scheduled to vend at a mermaid festival!

I decided to redo the pictures this year and spruce up the pattern a bit. It is now available for free here or you can purchase the PDF in my Etsy Shop. I hope you enjoy making these little guys as much as I do!

I have big plans for this applique in the coming months, so be sure to stay tuned!

Materials:

• 4 – 5mm / G-H Crochet Hook
• Worsted weight yarn in your choice of colors. I used Hobby Lobby Brand Yarn Bee in Clay.
• Scissors
• Yarn Needle

Stitches Used:


• CH – Chain
• SC – Single Crochet
• HDC – Half Double Crochet
• DC – Double Crochet
• TR – Triple Crochet (Treble Crochet)
• SLST – Slip Stitch

Written in Standard US Crochet Terms

Advanced Beginner Level

Pattern Notes:


• Each Arm is made by chaining and then working in the back bumps (or 3rd loop) of the chain back to the magic Ring.
• Change the size of your appliqué by using a smaller or bigger hook.
• If you are uncomfortable with the Magic Ring technique, CH4 and join to first chain to form a loop and work into the loop.

Pattern:

All one Round: WORK IN BACK BUMP OF CHAIN

• Start with MR.

Working in the “back bump” or “third loop” gives your piece an even and finished look.

CH6, SC in 3rd CH from hook, HDC in next, DC in next, TR in last, join with SLST to MR – 1 arm made

Look at that gorgeous sparkle in my hook from Love Stitches All!!

• Repeat 4 more times for 5 points of starfish.

• Pull closed, then join to base first arm and fasten off. Leave tail for sewing.

RIGHT SIDE
WRONG SIDE

You may need to flatten and reshape the appliqué so it lays flat like shown. But will be fine once sewn on.

You can use either side of the appliqué you wish. I love how you can get two different looks with the same appliqué!


This is an Everything Cozy I made using the starfish appliqué. These would work great on blankets, baskets, beach bags and more!

The Everything Cozy is adjustable in the back with 2 buttons, so it will fit iced drinks, hot drinks and mugs.

Here is an iced drink cozy that one of my testers Christi of Hugs An Stitches on Instagram. The pattern is the Darcy Cozy (coming soon) from Jessica Lee’s

I just love the beachy vibe of this cozy!

We’d love to see what you are making! Be sure to tag us on Facebook and Instagram with @kathyskozies and #kathyskozies if you make them!

The hook I used in these pictures was made by Love Stitches All, follow her on Instagram!

The buttons and name plate can be found in my Etsy Shop!
