{Crochet} Christmas Stars FREE

christmas craftCrochet stars are the perfect quick crochet make for Christmas. They can be used for present toppers, ornaments, garlands and more. This FREE star pattern has only 3 rounds which means they literally take minutes to make. I’ve used my favourite Cotton Aran, which is from Paintbox Yarns. If you’d like to use the same colours they are called – Mustard Yellow, Blush Pink, Spearmint Green and Bubblegum Pink. The main tutorial is written in UK terms, but if you scroll to the end you’ll find US instructions. Tag your stars #crochetflowerstars on social media. I’d love to see them! :)
