You may have seen this Star Applique in my recent Seeing Stars Basic Baby Beanie post, or my Star and Stripes Baby Beanie post. Ever since I put it down in writing, I have wanted to try out different yarn types to see what other size options I could get.

Any weight yarn will do – star measurements will vary.
Some hook sizes listed above are not standard US hook sizes. You can change out to the closest one you have – for example, in my now old set I did not have a 2mm but I had a 2.25mm and I did not have a 4.5mm but I had a 4.25mm.
I had each star ready to go in about ten minutes!

I am somewhat jealous of your hooks. I have one that is like that, and it is so much more comfortable to use.
🙂 Thanks for dropping me a line
These hooks look amazing!! I hate that some hooks cover up the sizes or only have one. I prefer to know the mm. I too have a hard time finding ergonomic hooks that fit in my hands. These look like they might be a good option
These were a GREAT option for me! I love the fun colors, when in turn makes it easy to remember which size is which. They also feel awesome in my hands – I crochet so much that my hands ache all the time, and these definitely help with that.
it is great to be able to try all of the products. the carrying bag is really cute – craftyone
It is! I was a little worried about what kind of bag I'd be getting, but I couldn't have asked for a better bag! And now I found out they have other fun options too.

Hi I’m just learning how to make the stars but I need to make one big one for a blanket I’m making but I’m not sure how to. I can make a small one but how many more chains and double crochets do I use?? HELP PLZZ!!
This small one already requires quite a few yarn overs, and large stitch (quad). I am not sure how much larger you need to go, but you might have more luck working a large circle/hexagon, and then work back in forth to create the star shape.
