Use this simple crochet star pattern to make these adorable little crochet stars. They are a perfect scrap yarn project! Great to use for decorating for the fourth of July or Christmas!

I was recently looking on Pinterest for crochet star patterns I wanted to use in another project. While I was practicing a couple different stars, I ended up creating my own simple crochet star pattern that I loved!

Eventually, while making a whole pile of crochet stars, I modified the pattern a bit to start with scs instead of dcs.  The stars are so similar, but end up a different size. Both patterns are below and by using different hooks with different size yarn, you can make a fun variety of crochet stars!

These are a wonderful scrap yarn buster. The smallest stars with baby weight yarn took less than 0.1 ounces of yarn and the bulky yarn stars took around 0.5 ounces. I had so much fun working through my scraps, I couldn’t stop! I made fourth of July themed stars using up my red, white and blue scraps, but they would also be perfect for other holidays or decorations like Christmas or birthdays.

  1. I love what you do! Just a starter in crochet and knitting. But my neighbor will teach me these stars. And after a lot of practice I hopefully will be able to crochet the Kristie cardigan.

    Warm greetings from the Netherlands,

    • MoJuffie, wow! Thank you for the sweet and kind words. I think you will be able to make the cardigan in no time! It is really just three rectangles! The sleeves are probably the hardest part but I tried not to make them too complicated! Happy crocheting!
