Psst… looking for a quick holiday decoration? The other day, I wanted to fill out an area on my tree and always wanted to do something with Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in the Starlight colorway. I’ve been in love with it since the first time I saw it, I just couldn’t figure out what to make with it. Finally, I decided to make up a quick and easy star garland – like seriously, with this chunky yarn it takes minutes to get a star made! The subtle sparkle with the neutral shade of this yarn combined with some jute twine makes it looks perfectly rustic and can blend in easily with your home holiday decor!
Also, the stars do manage to come out pretty rigid with this yarn/hook combo, but if you are looking for more rigidity you can use a fabric stiffener!
It’s really fun to put around the house. I put mine on my tree but this could also look really cute on top of your windows, over doorways, or even to fill in an area on your wall!
You can make these as long or short as you want, for mine, I made 6 stars and put them on jute that is approximately 40 inches long.
sc (single crochet)
sl st (slip stitch)
Gauge is not terribly important here.
This pattern is written using US terminology.
Stars are made using one joined round.
Completed stars measure approximately 4 inches wide.
Please note that I crochet left-handed and my photo guides may reflect this. If you crochet right-handed (with your hook in your right hand), all the stitches are the same and will look the same, you will simply be working in the opposite direction as I am.
Please do not copy of sell my pattern in any way. You are welcome to sell finished objects made using my pattern. I only ask for you to please credit me and link back when applicable so that other makes can find my pattern as well. Thanks!
If desired, you can use a fabric stiffener on the stars, although I’ve found them to stay pretty straight on their own.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you, I’m happy to help in any way I can. Leave a comment!
Rnd 1: Make 5 sc into magic ring. Sl st to first st.
Rnd 2: *Ch 3. In second ch from hook, sl st, and in third ch from hook, sc. Sl st to the next st.* Repeat from * four more times. You will end up with 5 points. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Depending on how far you want your stars spread out on your garland, cut your length of twine. I wanted my six stars fairly close together so I cut approximately 40 inches of jute. Thread the jute into your yarn needle and pass through all stars.
If you prefer, I also threw together a quick video showing how to crochet the stars.
And there you have your Quick and Easy Rustic Star Garland!
