Crochet stars for your Christmas tree

Crochet Christmas decoration

Written pattern plus video tutorial (in Slovak language)

I love Christmas handmade decoration. So this year I decided to make my own crochet Christmas decoration. Therefore I made these lovely stars (or snowflakes - as you wish).

The stars are easily and quickly made. Only sew a lace or ribbon, add a button and they are ready to make your Christmas tree more personal, more beautiful ;) 

I made two types of stars, in one colour and two colours.

We need:
  • yarn (colour is up to you, also the thickness, I used the yarn for hooks 5-6), something glittering to add to yarn  
  • hook (mine is 5.0 mm)
  • ribbon (instead of crochet lace)
  • buttons
  • scissors, needle, and thread

  • mr - magic ring
  • ch - ch
  • slst - slip stitch
  • dc3tog - double crochet 3 together, make one dc, do not finish it, in the same st make another one, do not finish it, in the same st make the third one and now go through all the loops you have on your hook (you made 3 dc with in one st, they have the same top)
  • dc2tog - double crochet 2 together
  • st - stitch


Star Nr 1

  1. mr, in mr chrocet 2 ch, dc2tog, 3 ch, *dc3tog, 3 ch* repeat, at the end you will have 5 inner parts, slst to the st, that closed dc2tog (so do not slst to the second ch from the beginning)
  2. 3 ch, in the 3ch loop crochet dc3tog, 2 ch, in the second ch from hook make slst, 3 ch, slst to the st, that closed dc3tog in the previous round, repeat, at the end you have 5 bigger outer parts, finish by making slst to the first slst in the round, cut the yarn
  3. crochet lace we can make by joining new yarn by slst to one of the tip, then crochet as many ch as you want (e.g. 20 or 25), slst again to the beginning, cut yarn, sew on the button and done :)

Star Nr 2

  1. the same step, but finish by slst and cut yarn
  2. join new yarn with slst to one of the 3ch loops, then continue normally as in the first star, but do not slst to close the tip in the st, that closed the dc3tog, instead of it make slst by going around that st, so no yarn from the first step will be seen, and the inner star will go in front (the video from the 15th min)
  3. the other parts of the pattern are the same :)
