Christmas, Pattern

Merry and Bright Stars

A super quick festive make!

I will be the first to admit that I’m a serial procrastinator… I can be working on one project when my mind wanders off to something else and before I know it, I’ve started something new!

Which is exactly how these cute this stars came about!

While working on one particularly festive order recently, I started playing around with some cotton yarn and soon I was surrounded by dinky little stars!

These stars are super quick to make up, using only chains and single crochet and 2 rounds! Simply add a thread and they can be used to decorate your tree or for tags on your Christmas gifts, or turned into a garland to hand in the fireplace.

And made in chunky yarn, they’re even better!

Materials

  • Any weight yarn – for this tutorial, I have used Paintbox Simply Super Chunky
  • Crochet hook – make sure this matches your yarn weight (see pattern notes)
  • Yarn needle to weave in ends
  • Scissors

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written in US term – UK terms can be found in the abbreviations section.
  • I have made this in both Paintbox Simply Super Chunky and Scheepjes Catona. I used a 10mm hook for the super chunky yarn and a 3.5mm hook for the Scheepjes. I would suggest using a 4mm hook for DK weight and a 4.5mm hook for Aran weight yarns.
  • If making in a chunkier yarn and you do not have a suitable yarn needle, you can use a smaller crochet hook to pull you tails through to finish.
  • The Ch 1 at the start of each round does not count as a stitch.
  • This pattern is worked in a round and should not be turned.
  • Any instructions inside the parenthesis [ ] must be worked in to the same ch sp.
  • You will be working in the chain spaces only and will miss all sc.

Stitches Used and Abbreviations

  • Sl st – Slip stitch
  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – Single crochet (UK double crochet)

Pattern

Foundation Chain: Ch 4, sl st in starting ch to form a ring

Weave in your ends and your star is complete!

Simply attach a thread of yarn or ribbon to one of the chain spaces and hanging you beautiful little star on the tree!
