The third pattern in the crochet pentagon series is this double crochet solid pentagon.
The fabric is mostly solid with the exception of the corners, where the chain 2 gaps form a lovely star-like pattern.
The solid pentagon is an excellent alternative to the granny pentagon when you need a soft building block that doesn’t have too many holes.

HOW TO Double CROCHET A Solid PENTAGON – Free pattern TUTORIAL
Make a MC.
Note. Alternatively, you can ch 4 and sl st into the first ch to form a ring, or ch 4 and crochet the first round in the first-made ch.
Round 1. Ch 4 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), (dc 3, ch 2) 4 times, dc 2. Join the round with a sl st into the third-made ch (see pink arrow in photo 1). (15 dc, 5 ch-2 sps).
Round 2. Sl st into the first ch-2 sp of round 1, ch 4 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), dc 1 in same ch-2 sp (photo 3), (dc 3 (photo 4), [dc 1, ch 2, dc 1] in next ch-2 sp (photo 5)) 4 times, dc 3, sl st into third-made ch of initial ch-4 (photo 6). (25 dc, 5 ch-2 sps)
Round 3. Sl st into first ch-2 sp of previous round, ch 4 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), dc 1 in same ch-2 sp, (dc 5, [dc 1, ch 2, dc 1] in next ch-2 sp) 4 times, dc 5, sl st into third-made ch of initial ch-4. (35 dc, 5 ch-2 sps)
Round 4. Sl st into first ch-2 sp of previous round, ch 4 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), dc 1 in same ch-2 sp, (dc in each st on next side, [dc 1, ch 2, dc 1] in next ch-2 sp) 4 times, dc in each st on next side, sl st into third-made ch of initial ch-4. (45 dc, 5 ch-2 sps)
Continue to grow your pentagon following the same pattern logic as for round 4.
Notice how at each round, the sides of the pentagon grow by 2 sts, and the overall stitch count increases by 10 dc sts per round!
