Crochet Christmas Star Garland Free Pattern

Christmas has arrived on our mantel with the creation of this adorable crochet Christmas star garland pattern! I've includeda free pattern and photo tutorial so you can make one, too.

This Christmas Bunting Uses the Granny Stitch

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.

This crochet Christmas star garland pattern is 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.

  • 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.

  1. This is so striking that it caught my eye quickly as I was looking for a quick idea to spruce up my door wreath. I love how easy and quick it is to make up and also am going to use just the red and white flower for other projects. Thank you for sharing your talents. Be well and Merry Christmas.

    1. Hi Nancy! That is SO bizarre! I’ve had this post on the blog for years and now the last 2 rows are missing. I rewrote them just now and you can now finish it. So sorry about that! They just went POOF!

    1. Hi Christine! That is SO bizarre! I’ve had this post on the blog for years and now the last 2 rows are missing. I rewrote them just now and you can now finish it. So sorry about that! They just went POOF!

    1. Hi Angela! Which part doesn’t match up? As of the time you wrote this comment, 2 of the rounds were missing. Is that what you mean? I’ve now added them back. They literally went poof, it was bizarre! But it’s all fixed now.

  2. Idk what I did wrong but this didn’t work for me. First, the chain 1 in round 3 didn’t make it across the gap & things started scrunching up. I switched it to chain 3 and it seemed OK. I continued on to round 4 buuut, it definitely wasn’t a star, it was a triangle ? Any advice?
