So, to start with we will need 2 different colours of Yarn and one crochet hook. I will recommend a hook size of 4mm and above for the beginners, and also 4 ply Yarn. Here we will be taking a 3.75mm hook since the yarn we have, works best with this particular hook. Also, please remember you can take any hook and yarn as far as they both are perfect for eachother.

Things we will need to make our Crochet Granny Star

  1. Crochet Hook Size: 3.75mm or more
  2. Yarn: Any 4 ply yarn

Further, we will also require a pair of scissors and a yarn needle. We will take 2 different colours so that it is easy for you to see each round properly.


Ch: chain

SS: slip stitch

dc: Double Crochet

SC: Single Crochet

The pattern for the Crochet Granny Star will be as below:

Ch 5, join with the 1st chain with a SS forming a circle
