As I stated above, this crochet star pattern was originally designed and included with my American Flag Blanket pattern! Although it was made to be used as an appliqué, I realized it could actually be used for so much more! I created this dedicated post and pattern to showcase this star and make it easier for everyone to find it!
This 4″ crochet star has endless potential! No matter the holiday or theme, you can change the colors to match any project! Since we’re coming up to the holidays, here’s a few ways to use it this season! You can use this star crochet pattern to make gift toppers, tree ornaments, or a garland!
You can use any medium (4) weight yarn for this star! I used Red Heart Super Saver for mine as it’s what I had in my stash. Some other yarns I think would work great are Lion Brand Yarn Color Theory, Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease, Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch, I Love This Yarn, Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek, and Big Twist Value.
I also used a 6.00mm (J) hook to create a 4″ star but you could use a smaller hook to create a smaller star too! If when you’re done your star it’s a little wonky, feel free to block it to make the points more pronounced and your edges straight!
- The number in (parentheses) at the end of each row represents the total number of stitches that are to be that row.
- The center of the star is worked in the round. Do not join at the end of the round. Work the 1st stitch of Row 1 into the 1st stitch of the previous round.
- The points of the star are worked in rows. At the end of each row, CH 1 or 2 & turn. The CH does not count as a ST.
- Medium (4) Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver )
- Approximately 15 yards per star
- 6.00 mm (J) Hook
- Yarn Needle
