K-Christmas star – Free crochet pattern

As last year I offered you the K-Christmas tree as a free crochet pattern, I’m introducing the K-Christmas star this year! Maybe I can make a nice little Christmas tradition out of it.

You could make several stars and make a Christmas bunting or you could hang them in your Christmas tree. Here they’re lying all over the place to be honest hahaha. Oh, I see one in the tree though!

Glitter yarn

I used only glitter yarn for my stars, Durable Glam to be precise, which made it a little harder to block them. You could vary with other cotton yarn and mix it with a nice glitter to make blocking easier.

To express my gratitude for you following me, supporting me, buying my patterns, I made a free PDF available in my Ravelry shop. In the PDF you can find photos of each round and a list of abbreviations.
