Here’s a beautiful, free crochet Christmas Star garland you can make for the holidays!
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.

Round 2 – White:
- You will work 2 granny stitches and a CH 3 on each red CH 3, which is also between the red granny stitches.
- In any CH 3 space, join with a SL ST, CH 3 or just work a DC onto it.
- TC, DC. CH 3.

Round 3 – Cherry Red:
- Again, like round 2, you will work 2 granny stitches and a CH 3 on each white CH 3, which is also between the white granny stitches. But this round, you will add an additional CH 1, 2 SC, CH 1 in between the sets of white granny stitches.

How to Make it a Garland
Here’s how to make piece the crochet Christmas star garland into the garland!
- *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.
Hope you enjoyed making this crochet Christmas star garland pattern! Merry Crocheting and Merry Christmas!
