This Crochet Star Pattern shows you how to make the crochet star with or without the hanging loop. The crochet star with the hanging loop can be hung on a Christmas tree as a crochet Christmas ornament or used as a decoration. The crochet star without the hanging loop can be used to sew onto pillows, blankets or Christmas stockings.
For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the Crochet Star Video Tutorial.
Small amount of Medium Worsted Weight Yarn (category 4) – Red Heart Yarn is nice to work with.
