Crochet Pattern: Rustic Star Ornament

By Amy Yarbrough – 7 Comments
There are many themes at Christmas, mostly with color. Berry red and Christmas tree green, often times mixed with white are a more average theme. Then there are candy-colored themes, neon palettes, and some royal colors like deep purple and chocolate brown. But my particular favorite is the old-fashioned theme of dark reds and greens, with some browns thereabouts. Gives you a feeling of cherished Christmases from the past. That’s the same feeling I wanted to capture while designing this pattern. Old and cherished. This star ornament was made with simple stitches and a rustic cotton yarn. Very easy and fun! Merry Christmas everyone! Rustic Star Ornament

    These handy little stars have only taken a couple of minutes to make but the pleasure the grandchildren get is immense. Grandpa puts up the tree and the kids tell him where everything goes. This year I made a bucket of stars and they painted them and put glitter on and did whatever they wanted, they ended up as a garland strung around our dining room, Thank you.
