I don’t know about you, but I get a lot of inspiration while wandering through Pinterest, and when I saw these crocheted stars (while you’re there, consider following me on Pinterest!), I knew I wanted some. But there was no pattern at the end of that rainbow, so I fall back on my “I saw, I want, I conquer” process. This involves me, on a couch with some cheap yarn, a hook and a lot of crocheting and uncrocheting. Still, I got something that works and looks similar enough, so here’s the crochet star ornament pattern at the end of your rainbow. Or for your Christmas tree.
Crochet Star Ornament Pattern
Worsted weight yarn. I used both cotton and acrylic yarn.
G size hook
puff stitch – *Yarn over, insert hook into ring, yarn over and pull through*. Repeat from * 2 more times. You should have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over one last time, and pull hook through all the loops on your hook.
Start with a magic ring.
Round 1: *Work 1 puff stitch. Chain 2*. Repeat from * 4 more times for a total of 5 puff stitches. Slip stitch into the top of the first puff stitch.
Round 2: Chain 2. In the same stitch, work (2 DC, Chain 1, 3 DC). In the next 4 puff stitches, work (3 DC, Chain 1, 3 DC). Slip stitch into the first DC to end the round.
Round 3: *Chain 1. In the chain space from the previous round, work (1 HDC, 2 DC, Chain 2, 2 DC, 1 HDC). Chain 1. Slip stitch into 3rd DC from hook.* Repeat from * 4 more times. The last slip stitch should end the round.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Thread a ribbon through the star to hang it on your tree!
