Crochet Star Ornament Pattern

by | Crochet, Home, Winter

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

Supplies

Worsted weight yarn.  I used both cotton and acrylic yarn.
G size hook
yarn needle
scissors

Abbreviations

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.

Crochet Star

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.

    This is awesome! I too have seen that pin and loved it! I looked at it just this morning and finally pinned it, thinking to myself that I could probably figure it out! I just now saw this and am thrilled I don’t have to figure it myself! Thanks Sara

      My pleasure Sara! I’ve had that pin on my to-do list for ages. Of course, I wait until the week before Christmas to sit down and figure it out. But I’m glad you like it and will use it! Happy Holidays!

    Maybe I am just a little slow this afternoon, but how many chain stitches to do the circle?

    Reply
    • ChiWei

      Hi Frances, you do not work any chain stitches in the circle. You start with a magic circle so that it can be closed all the way, and the puff stitches are worked directly into the magic circle. Hope that helps!

        Any tricks to getting started with the puff stitch in the magic circle? I seem to b e having diffculty making it work.

      • ChiWei

        Hi Mary, to be honest, I had to practice several times to get the puff stitch to look right. Every time you yarn over, try to keep the tautness of the yarn consistent, and then once a puff stitch is complete, you might need to fidget a bit and tighten it up by pulling on some yarns.

      • Pam

        do you chain any before you start the puff stitches

    I use a public computer so really shouldn’t download this in order to print it. How can I print without downloading? Really want to try this star! Thanks!

      I’m not sure I understand why you would need to download anything. You can print directly from the browser or copy the pattern to a text file and print from the text file. Thanks!

    Definitely making these for next year! Had our Christmas early as we are expecting a new little one in January and doc told her to stay close to home! Going to use glitter yarn to “sparkle” them. Also using blues to have an “icy” theme I think Thanks for the pattern

    I’ve never done a magic ring, but would like to try this pattern. What I’m not clear on is how many stitches should be done initially to make the ring. All the YouTube videos I’ve seen, as well as your information on the tutorial showing how to make the ring, call for a certain number of single crochet stitches to make the initial ring. I believe you said it is often six–to go by the pattern. But the star pattern doesn’t say how many. Or maybe I’ve missed something. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

      Joan, for this pattern, you don’t work any single crochets into the magic ring. Once you have an open ring, you work the puff stitches directly into the ring and then pull tight at the end of the first round.

        Okay. I get it now. I guess I was a bit dense there. I appreciate your taking the time to reply and explain this to me. …Joan

        I had trouble with it too, at first. Probably because I have never worked a magic ring quite like that. But it was well worth the little time it took to figure it out.

    So tickled with this pattern! I much prefer the magic ring method! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for the pattern! I had some difficulty with the last round. It seems it was too rounded. I think part of the problem was the wool was not stiff enough so I used another one and it was better. I still had trouble with the definition so I tried to work from your picture. It looks like you have either a slip stitch between the HDC, DC, CH, DC, HDC so I tried a SC which seemed to anchor it a bit and give it definition. I hope this helps others. Thanks again!!!!
