Hey there, this is a free pattern from a vintage book I've got and it actually made a lot of sense. Thought I'd share with everybody who can't seem to find the right pattern for a 5 pointed star.
5 Pointed Star Crochet Pattern (takes prob 10 minutes or so for itermediate crochet peeps):
5 sc in 2nd ch from hook
3 sc in each sc around
Starting the points of the stars-
*1 sc in next st, Ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 tr in next ch, 1 tr in base of the start sc, sk to sc (of your main piece)* and repeat from * (4 more times) for 5 points on your star! Sl st in first sc to join at the end :D
