Get ready to meet your cutest little make yet! This easy crochet star pattern may look all fancy and complicated, but here’s a little secret: you are 2 rows away from adorable! Get ready to crochet these sweet crochet stars!
The truth is… you never quite know when an adorable little crochet star applique pattern is going to come in handy. Maybe you’re wrapping gifts and need a beautiful quick crochet star pattern to give you a little something-something to go on top. Maybe you need an easy crochet star ornament pattern you can make quickly out of stash yarn. Or maybe you just need a little smile…for yourself or for someone else. This simple crochet star pattern can truly be anything you want!
Let’s get real here… there are a few things in life that UNIVERSALLY bring a smile to someone’s face: Sunshine. Rainbows. And Stars. I’m sure there must be a study on this somewhere. Maybe? If not, then there should be!
Think about it. You could literally change the world one easy crochet star at a time.
But first, you have to make the star. I love this crochet star pattern on so many levels. I love that it’s a great stash buster. That little bit of leftover yarn goodness you don’t quite know what to do with… yup, star material. You can change hook size and yarn weight and make this in all sorts of fun sizes. Plus, you can make it with so many yarn colors to make it look unique to who the star is for!
This star crochet pattern is great for a Christmas Ornament or for topping a Crochet Christmas Tree. It would look mighty fine on a crochet hat or anywhere else you might like a beautiful star appliqué. Hang one in every window. Or make a garland of stars. Honestly, these would also look adorable on a baby blanket!
These cutie pie crochet stars have a bit of a nod to the ordinary granny square. This cute little star starts out as a variation of a granny square and then goes wild in that 2nd row! The little star point of the five-pointed star is formed by picots.
If you’ve never made picots before, not to worry… they are easy to do. Just chain a few stitches and slip stitch back into one of the earlier chains. And if you want a loop for hanging, just work a few extra chains as part of the picot on a star point.
