Quick and Easy Simple crochet star pattern perfect for using up scraps and using to decorate for your favorite holidays. String them together to make a garland, add a hook to make an ornament, or hang them like in the stars wall hanging. You’ll find two different versions of the simple crochet stars for free below!
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!
How do you crochet a star?
You’ll start with a magic ring and either work single crochets or double crochets into the ring. For the next round, you’ll work a series of single crochets, double crochets, and treble crochets to form each of those star points.
That’s it! The stars are only two rounds. The patterns below include instructions for the single crochet version and the double crochet version. The stars are similar but varying the start and using different yarn and hook sizes you can make a 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!
Once you get used to crochet the stars, even making them with fuzzy yarn becomes easy!
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.
If you hang them like in the crochet star wall hanging, the whole thing can be used as a modern wall hanging or in a nursery as a mobile.
They’d also be adorable hung as a garland and would be a great and reusable party decoration.
