Free Crochet Star Garland Pattern - perfect to decorate the mantel for patriotic holidays!

Show Your American Pride!

July Fourth is such a fun holiday – I have so many wonderful childhood memories celebrating it on North Georgia lakes – learning to water ski, Grandmama making Chicken Brunswick Stew, Grandaddy smoking pork, swimming like a fish, fireworks, and winning the prize one year for the best decorated boat where I dressed up as Miss America. I can’t wait to create memories like that for our children and will start small with decorations, since they aren’t yet old enough to stay up for a fireworks show.

Crochet Star Mantle Garland - Free Pattern

Perfect for Memorial Day through July Fourth!

Next year, I’ll put this banner up at Memorial Day and keep it up through the Fourth to celebrate longer! I haven’t gotten around to stiffening the fabric yet, but will probably also do that so the stars will be straight. It looks fine when you look at it straight on.

This pattern comes from my Crochet Lacy Star Applique pattern but one more round is added and one more chain is added to the points to create a bigger hole. So, I’ll just include the whole pattern here for ya, however, that other pattern includes a photo tutorial if you get stuck on this one. I used the other pattern to create a baby mobile that is just SO cute!

The Pattern

Written by Sara of My Merry Messy Life, copyright  ©2013. Please see my terms of use for using my crochet patterns.

Finished size is 6 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches tall, depending on the yarn used.

  • CH 4
  • SL ST to form a ring

Round 1

  • CH 6 (counts as first dc)
  • *1 dc, ch 3* repeat 4 times so there are 5 spokes, including the first CH 6
  • Sl st to the 3rd ch of the ch 6 to join

Round 2

  • Sl st into the first spoke space
  • Ch 3 (counts as first dc)
  • 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the same sp as the ch 3 (if you’d like a smaller hole, ch 2 instead of 3)
  • In the remaining 4 spoke spaces, work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc
  • Sl st to the top of the beginning ch 3

Round 3

(change colors here if you like)

(You can really start anywhere in the star you’d like, but I chose to start right next to where I finished).

  • Attach with a sl st or a standing double crochet into one of the dc spaces (this pattern is starting at the beginning of a spoke space)
  • Dc in the next sp
  • *{In the ch 3 sp} work 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc
  • 1 dc in each of the next 2 sp’s
  • Skip the next 2 dc’s (only 1 sp)

Round 4

(change colors here if you like)

(You can really start anywhere in the star you’d like, but I chose to start right next to where I finished).

Note: I skipped 2 spaces twice on each side because my stars were starting to get really floppy. You might not need to do this if your tension is tight. If your star starts to curl towards you, you will need to crochet in those spaces and not skip them.

  • Attach with a sl st or a standing double crochet into one of the dc spaces (this pattern is starting at the beginning of a spoke space)
  • Dc in the next sp
  • *{In the ch 3 sp} work 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc
  • 1 dc in each of the next 3 sp’s
  • Skip the next 2 dc’s (only 1 sp)
  • 1 dc in each of the next 3 sp’s
  • Skip the next 2 dc’s (only 1 sp)
  • Repeat from * 4 more times
  • Sl st to the top of the dc or ch 3 to finish.

The Chain

I used two strands together and a J sized hook.

  • *ch 10
  • Take 1 star and crochet 3 dc onto one of the points at the ch 3
  • ch 10
  • Repeat from * until all stars are on the chain.
