FINISHED SIZE OF CROCHET STAR

My finished crochet star is 3 inches (8 cm) tall and wide when using a 3.25 mm hook and Rico Creative Cotton Aran. You can use other hook and yarn combinations to make your crochet star bigger or smaller. Just make sure your stitches are tight to avoid stuffing showing through. I wrote about yarn and hook exchanges to change the size of your amigurumi in this blog post.

MAKING AND ATTACHING THE FACE

To make the star’s face, you’ll need a small piece of felt, black embroidery floss, thread that matches the color of your felt, an embroidery needle, and a sewing needle.
