Crochet Christmas Star Garland Free Pattern

I’m so happy with the way it turned out, after many tries to get it just right, of course. I made one larger stitch in between each smaller stitch which creates a pucker effect, so the star puffs up and has a lot of texture. The possibilities for colors are endless, so you can make it to match your own Christmas decor! It would also look lovely draped on a staircase, down a hallway, or hanging from a door.

It’s made using the Granny Stitch, so it works up pretty quickly. Once I got the hang of it, I could make one in about 45 minutes. I used all Red Heart Super Saver Yarn because I find it’s perfect for making crafts like this, where you need strong acrylic yarn that isn’t soft so it stands out straight.

To make it a garland, just CH 30, 3 SC, CH 30

To Make It a Garland – Using Paddy Green
  • *CH 30.
  • Work 3 SC onto one of the picot points of one star.
  • CH 30.*
  • Repeat from * until you have joined all the stars together.
  • For my mantel, I needed 9 to 10 stars to stretch all the way across and my mantel is 78 inches (198 CM) long. I say 9 to 10, because it’s 9 if I show the first and last CH 30, but 10 if I hide or don’t do the first and last CH 30.
