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.
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!
