These crochet stars are so quick to make and the perfect stash buster project. They are perfect for creating Christmas garlands, using as gift tags on presents, or on some twine around the top of a bottle of wine or mason jar.
This pattern is written in US terminology
STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS
CH - Chain
DC - Double Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
TC - Treble/Triple Crochet
SL ST - Slip Stitch
I used a 3.5mm hook with Drops Muskat DK in white.
I also used a darning needle and a length or brown twine to create the garland.
MC - Magic Circle: Magic Circle (video here on how to create a magic circle)
Round1: 10 HDC
Round 2: Place 2HDC in every stitch to create 20HDC, SL ST to join.
CH7, work a SC into the 3rd chain from the hook.
Work a HDC in the next chain
Work 2DC into the next 2 chains
Work a TC into the final and seventh chain (I modify this a little to provide and anchor to the circle) - Modified TC:
YO twice and insert into the chain, YO and pull through. Yo and pull through 2 loops, skip one stitch and insert hook into the next stitch along on the edge of the circle, Yo and pull through. You and pul through 3 loops on hook, YO and pull through 2 loops on hook to close the stitch. Skip next stitch on edge on circle and SL ST into next stitch.
Repeat from Chain 7 to create 4 more points to the your star.
