How to crochet a CHRISTMAS STAR to decorate your gift in the last minute!

Only few days to Christmas, the last gifts are ready and now how do we decorate them?

I thought of a simple and quick star, made with a soft cord that keeps its shape.

Used crochet hook and yarn
  • 🧶I used Swan Thai cord Tresfere
  • Crochet hook 3,5 mm
  • scissor
  • tapestry needle

📌Suggested yarns: if you like to have a sturdy and rigid Christmas star as a result, I recommend the Swan Thai cord or the Twister yarn by Tresfere, which can be purchased in the Lisa Davì Filati Romance.

📌Cotton, wool and acrylic are ideal for this star if you want a softer result.

Depending on the yarn you choose, you will need to adjust the size of the crochet hook.

Reapet from * to * 4 times to have 5 point of the star at the end of the round.

Close with 1 SL ST in the 1st SC.

To make a loop, work 20 CHs and close in ring with 1 SL ST, so you can hang the star on a Christmas Tree.

You can use the star just worked as a:
