Hey there!

Today’s free crochet pattern features this super easy and quick Christmas ornament! You can make one of these in about 10 minutes so they are the perfect last minute gift for stocking stuffers or extended family!!

Below are photos of each step to help you in case you get stuck or lost!

For the pictured stars I used Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes yarn. I recommend using this yarn or another natural fiber yarn such as a cotton, linen, or wool blend because natural fibers are easier to block than acrylic fibers. That being said, this pattern is an excellent scrap yarn stash buster and you can also just use whatever yarn you have on hand already!

CH: Chain
