I will try to help. Outer point means the very tip of the star, that would be the middle stitch of the 3 sc group, you should always have 3sc at the very tip! The inner point is the last stitch on the inside of the part that looks like a V (down one side skip the last sc on the down side and skip the first sc on the up side) sc how ever many stitches the pattern calls for in between those two points. I hope this helps. Just remember to increase where pattern calls for. Hope i did not confuse you more.
