I absolutely love making little crochet stars! They are a quick and easy make and can be made in any weight of yarn. I string mine together to create garlands which I sell in my Etsy shop.
I’ve written the pattern below so you can make your own, I’ve given details of the yarn/hook that I use but as long as you use the appropriate size hook you can use any yarn you like – the chunkier the yarn the bigger the star!
Crochet Star Pattern
What you’ll need:
- Aran cotton
- 4mm crochet hook
- darning needle
- ch – Chain
- st – Stitch
- dc – Double Crochet (US Single Crochet)
- htr – Half Treble Crochet (US Half Double Crochet)
- tr – Treble Crochet (US Double Crochet)
- dtr – Double Treble Crochet (US Treble Crochet)
Pattern is written in UK terms
Make a magic circle.
Round 1 – (working into the magic circle) ch3 (counts as first tr), 14tr into magic circle, ss to top of beginning ch3 (15trs)
Round 2 – *ch6, dc into 3rd chain from hook, htr in next ch, tr in next ch, dtr in last ch, skip 2 st’s and ss to next st and join the point back to the centre*.
Repeat from * to * 4 more times to create a 5 pointed star.
Fasten off, sew in ends and block start to get sharper points.
TIP – Depending on the final use for the stars you might want to block them with a 50/50 mixture of pva glue and water. This is the technique I use for my garlands as they hang better and don’t curl.
I really hope you enjoy this pattern! Please remember to tag me in any Instagram posts as I’d love to see your makes (@jellybean_junction).
Happy hooking x
