Here's how to…
Make 1 front and one back similarly

• 10 dc in ch 1
• 2dc in all stitches (20sts)
• 3dc, 2dc in next stitch * repeat (25sts)
• 4dc, 2dc in next stitch * repeat (30sts)
• Continue with 5,6,7 etc. dc between increases (or until the star is the size you want it to be) - this star has 50sts in total
• Star points:
• make ch 1 and turn the work
• 1dc in each of next 10 stitches, ch 1, turn
• 2dc tog, dc in next 6 sts, 2dc tog, ch 1, turn
• 1dc in each of next 8 stitches, ch 1, turn
• 2dc tog, dc in next 4 sts, 2dc tog, ch 1, turn
• 1dc in each of next 6 stitches, ch 1, turn
• 2dc tog, dc in next 2 sts, 2dc tog, ch 1, turn
• 1dc in each of next 4 stitches, ch 1, turn
• 2dc twice, ch 1, turn
• 1dc in each of next 2 stitches, ch 1, turn
• 2dc tog
• Now make 1 ch in each row end down the left side. Finish with a sl st in the 10th st from where you started the points
• Continue to make 4 more points in same way.
Sew front to back either by working dc sts all around through both thicknesses - stuffing before completing - or by back stitching (RS facing) leaving a gap then turning out through gap, stuffing and completing the seam sewing.

For mine I used a DK cotton with a 4.5mm hook (N.B  - DC as english version =SC in US version)
