*Measurements: 11 in. x 11 in. [~28 cm x ~28 cm] if using the prescribed materials.
Watch this quick walk-through video of the pattern HERE.
*Note: We will create the centers of the front and back first and then join yarn to create each point.
Rnd 1: Make a magic circle and (sc) x10 
Rnd 2: (inc) x10 
Rnd 3: (sc, inc) x10 
Rnd 4: (sc, inc, sc) x10 
Rnd 5: (3 sc, inc) x10 
Fasten off on the first piece. Make the second piece but do not fasten off. Pull up a loop and set your hook to the side.
Step 1: Hold the two star centers together with the right sides facing out.
Step 2: Mark every 10th st with a stitch marker through both layers.
Step 3: Insert your hook into the loop we left off and follow the steps for each star point. [img 1]
Rnd 1: Make 10 sc. Remove the stitch marker and turn the star over to the opposite side. Make another 10 sc. 
*Note: We will now work each individual point in a spiral.
Rnd 2: (dec, 2 sc) x5 
Rnd 3: (dec, sc) x5 
Rnd 4: sc all around 
Rnd 5: (dec) x5 
Fasten off and leave a long tail on the first point that we will use to sew up the hole as well as the gaps between each point at the very end. Fasten off and leave short tails to close up the points on the rest of the 4 points.
To make the next point, join new yarn and work into the next open st. Repeat rnds 1-5 for all of the points. [img 2]
*Tip: Be sure to always start on the same side of the star!
Before you start your last point, stuff the star well. [img 3]
Close the holes at each point by sewing through the flo of each st and then cinching tight.
*Tip: Right before sewing all of the gaps, stuff each point a little more through them.
Using the longest yarn tail, sew the gaps between each of the points. [img 4]
