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 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.
