This week’s free crochet pattern is perfect for the weekend after Thanksgiving – easy and relaxing, perfect for whipping up between turkey leftovers and naps. And they’re so fast and fun (only 2 rounds!) you’ll want to keep making them right on through the holidays! Introducing the free crochet pattern for Glittery Crochet Stars in 2 Rounds.

Glittery Crochet Stars in 2 Rounds! Free #Crochet Pattern and Photo Tutorial. These take less than 10 yds of yarn!

Lion Brand’s Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Ribbon inspired this pattern initially. I love it because it lets you make glittery, sparkle filled projects without covering yourself and your house and your kids and your dog… etc… in actual glitter (you know what I’m talkin’ about)!

But after I’d run though a couple skeins of it I decided to see how the star pattern would look in a finer yarn. One skein of Vanna’s Glamour and I couldn’t decide which I like more – the big chunky stars with their bold sparkle, or the little delicate ones with a more subtle glitter effect. Another great option would be Lion Brand Bon Bons – the holiday pack is perfect, and would make a ton of crochet stars in a whole bunch of colors! Either way, your trees, gifts, and garlands will be loaded with twinkle! (And how cute would the little ones be, appliqued on your little one’s holiday outfit?!)

So as soon as you’ve picked your yarn, you’ll need to choose which version of the Glittery Crochet Star pattern to make first – 5 point or 6 point! (Personally I like to switch back and forth, but it’s okay to have a favorite!)

      For the Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Ribbon I was able to get an average of 8 per skein. For the Vanna’s Glamour I’d estimate you could get between 20 and 30!

    Hi there.

    It is nice and looks easy to make but I struggle to understand written crochet patterns. Have you got it’s diagram because I find it easier looking at a diagram?

    Well done.

    Maria.

    These are fabulous! I am using up all of my leftover yarn from other projects and using them to top presents. They are gorgeous. My favorite so far is a super chunky oatmeal color with a size K hook! Thank you for posting the pattern…so easy for me to understand as a beginner!
