Crochet starfish amigurumi


A crochet five pointed starfish amigurumi pattern to use for underwater sea life mobile, crochet aquarium animal, toy, summer decoration. It is your choice.

The crochet starfish amigurumi is made with only basic crochet stitches and in several steps. First step is to crochet the bottom center part, join and finish it and sew in the end tail. The second center part is made of the top body part and the first arm.

The final four stages are the remaining four arms. If you want to put in some safety eyes I suggest you do it after the third arm is done and filling the starfish should be made after doing the first two or three rows of the last arm.


The stitches used in this pattern are:

  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain stitch
  • sc – single crochet stitch
  • inc – single crochet increase stitch (make 2 in 1)
  • dec – single crochet decrease crochet stich
