Crochet Star

Crochet stars are an essential for me.  I use them for my Independence Day decorations, for Halloween and for Christmas, too.   Sometimes they’re just used as every day décor, depending on how I feel.  They’re perfect for any time and any holiday.

 I also use them to embellish some of my baby projects and afghans.  They can be used to decorate jeans, purses, and hair accessories, too.  Are you starting to see just how wonderful crochet stars can be?

They come in so many different stitch designs, sizes and even different star shapes.  You’ll find your typical 5-point pattern; some have 6 points.  Some are whimsical, some are lacy and frilly.  You’re sure to find a pattern that’s perfect for whatever project you’re working on.

Remember, the size of your hook and the type of yarn will change the size of your stars.

Here are my favorite crochet stars.  Enjoy!
