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 pattern for an ornament.

Crochet Star Ornament Pattern


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


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.

Thread a ribbon through the star to hang it on your tree!

      Glad you figured it out!

  2. Alexandra

    I ran into the same problem with that pin, and then I was bummed out. But yay! Thanks for posting this!

  3. Amanda

    I am so glad I found this pattern. I was getting frustrated because I kept finding the picture with no instructions and am not very good yet at figuring out patterns by picture. I love your flower coaster pattern and now I have this one too. Thank you for your beautiful patterns.

  4. Anne

    In round 2, do you only chain two at the beginning or between each set of stitches? Thanks!

    • Susan Johnson

      Just the one. It represents the first double chain for that group of ‘3 DC, ch1,3DC’

  5. Susan Johnson

    I have looked at/attempted a number of similar stars. This is the only one that seems to work out. Will be my go-to for stars. Thanks for sharing this.

    Hi! I love this little crochet pattern so much that I included it in my favorite holiday DIY projects! I hope you’ll check out the my post and thank you for sharing this sweet little tutorial. 😀

  7. Bobbie

    Thank you. I was looking for a simple project I could make in small batches to give away as swaps and I think this might be it! I’m the sheriff at camp this year so it would be such a pleasure to do these 🙂

    • ChiWei

      That sounds so fun, and the campers will love it!

  8. Ilene

    I really like this crocheted star! I don’t follow directions very well, do you have a tutorial where we can see pictures of you doing the project? I would so love to make some of these. Thank you.

  9. Jerilyn

    Lovely pattern! What is the finished size? Thanks. 🙂

    • ChiWei

      Erm, maybe 4 inches? It’ll depend on your hook, gauge and yarn weight.

    Great Pattern, but when I copied and printed it the Yellowish-greenish titles (Ie. Supplies, etc) were practically invisible. I had to rewrite them in darker ink. Maybe a darker color would be good in the future.

  11. Grace

    Thank-you!! I just saw that pin with no pattern at the end of the rainbow. I’ve had a few tries at it on my own and was feeling frustrated. Now I’ve found you. Now I will have peace. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

  12. Frida

    I love that this pattern is trending in 2015 too 😀

    Thank you for sharing!

    Merry Christmas from Denmark

    I can’t get the pattern to print it will print everything else on the page except for the pattern, don’t know what I am doing wrong.

  14. Angie

    I love these! Thank you so much for sharing. I can’t wait to make some this year! 🙂

  15. Katrina Huitt

    Hi! I LOVE this pattern! They are so fun and easy to make! I use all of my scrap yarn because it takes such little yarn! Love! Love! Love! Thank you so much! Oh did I mention I LOVE this pattern? Yea it is fun!

  16. Iwanna

    I love this pattern! Thanks for sharing!

    • Katrina Huitt

      I made these for Christmas last year and everyone absolutely loved them they have this really cool yarn that’s got the shimmery wrapped around it they have it in black white and red I use that to make these Stars and they look so cool I love this pattern thank you thank you thank you

  17. Katrina A Huitt

    I discovered a new way to make this star. It looks more like a snowflakes number ten yarn and a D 3.00 mms hook and you have a tiny star! I think it looks more than a snowflake. I wanted to tell you that I am using this to make adorable earnings! I would post a picture but i don’t know how to post it.

  18. Sally ODonnell

    In round 2, after the first *…*, do you do the other 4 in the space between each puff stitch, or in the top of each puff stitch. Thank you, Sally, Southampton, Ma

    • Carrie

      In the top, I’m pretty sure. That’s how I did it and they look pretty darn good.

    The link for the original star you posted goes to slumberspun’s Etsy shop. If you click her profile picture you’ll see the star pattern is the only item listed. You will probably want to credit her as the original designer of this star 🙂

    I usually crochet away from home. While my client is sleeping. Is there a printable form of this pattern?
