Free Crochet Pattern Star

Free Crochet Pattern Star

You can use this star as an ornament for the Christmas tree or as decoration on a Christmas card or gift wrapping. It is a nice small project for your leftover yarn. The size of the star depends on the yarn weight and crochet hook you choose. The stars I crocheted as an example, are made with Scheepjes Stonewashed yarn and a 3.5 mm crochet hook. They measure approximately 7 cm.

The crochet pattern of the star can be found below. You can crochet along with the video, which also includes the chart, or follow the written instructions.

Fasten off and weave in ends. For the best result, I would advise you to block the star. That will make the point of the star stand out better.
