Today I want to bring you another quick ornament pattern—some Christmas stars that work up in 10 minutes or so! I love quick patterns. After making these, you’re sure to feel ahead in your Christmas gift preparations. 🙂

I love these stars because they are so adjustable to however you want to make them. You can easily vary the size simply by using a different weight yarn, or a different hook. 

This pattern includes two star patterns: a large star and a small star. However, as you can see in the photo above, I actually made a lot of different sizes simply by adjusting hook and yarn size. I would encourage you to experiment with it as well! I will also include details in the pattern as to what I specifically used. 

Also, if you are interested in the ad-free, PDF version of this pattern, find it HERE on Etsy! A big thank you in advance to all who decide to purchase. 🙂

In case you didn’t see last week’s pattern…I also have another quick ornament pattern for simple balls (see pictures below). You can find that HERE!

Now lets get on to these stars! Here is some yarn information: 

I used two different yarn weights—worsted and sport weight. For the worsted, I used Caron Simply Soft Party. I love this sparkly silver yarn! 

The second yarn I used was Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour. This is a sparkly sport weight yarn that I absolutely LOVE! It is so much fun to work with—and it definitely IS glamorous! Get some for yourself HERE!

All right, lets get to the pattern!
