Happy Go Lucky Crochet Starfish

Crochet Starfish Sped UpEver since I started making sea creatures I had been wanting to make a crochet starfish. It just seemed like something fun, maybe because of the pointy arms. More tellingly, I had recently watched the Spongebob Squarepants Movie (for the billionth time) and I felt it was time to make a starfish. I did not make Patrick but I did use a yarn colour very close to his colour…hmm, maybe a Patrick Star pattern is in my future.

This starfish pattern is actually pretty easy to make and once you’ve finished it you can embroider any kind of facial expression you want. For my crochet starfish, it just looked like it was so happy to be here (it even looks like it’s clicking its heels!) so that is the expression I gave it. Finished size is about 6.5 inches.

The points of the pentagon are created by making inc3 in the center stitch of each inc3. Observe my wonderful drawing!

The crochet starfish pattern details how this little fella is made by starting with 2 pentagons, and making the 5 arms off one. As per my handy drawing above, you can see how to set up the starfish body to have 5 arms.

  1. I love how you’ve constructed your starfish! I’m thinking of making one for a charm bracelet… which means I’ll need to make it very very small. Maybe if I use your pattern with embroidery floss? I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing this very cute pattern!

  2. I wonder if you can share other patterns of sea creatures at the very good price of free. Is that a possibility? I am trying to make a baby ocean blanket and need some more items to complete it.

  3. Just found these a few days ago!! Luv your starfish! And Mortimer! The neighbor’s 18month old calls them mama and daddy, ha! Luv all your patterns, as a matter of fact!
