Today we will learn how to Crochet Granny Star. It is very easy and looks very beautiful. Granny Stars can be turned into beautiful Christmas ornaments or buntings. Also, they can be attached to blankets, bags and wall hangings as appliques.

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
- Crochet Hook Size: 3.75mm or more
- 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.
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
(you can also ch 4 in place of because chain 5 creates a gap in the middle)
Step 1: Ch 3 (This will be counted as your 1st dc),
Step 2: 2dc in circle,
Step 3: ch 1, 3 dc in circle
Step 4: Repeat Step 3 (4 more times) and ch 1
Step 5: Join with SS to the 1st dc you made (not chain 3 one but the 1st dc itself)
Step 6: ch 1 and cut the yarn, secure it by pulling the same
At the end of Round 1, you will have 18 stitches since they are in a cluster of 3 and there are 6 clusters in total.
Take a new colour and make a slip knot and start with your hook in chain 1 space of 1st round
Step 1: Ch 3, 2dc in chain 1 space
Step 2: Ch 2, 3 dc in the same space
Step 3: Ch1, 3dc in the next chain 1 space
Step 4: Chain 2, 3dc in the same space
Step 5: Repeat Step 3 & 4 (4 more times)
Step 6: Ch 1, join with a SS in 1st dc
Step 7: ch 1 and cut the yarn, secure it by pulling the yarn
At the end of Round 2, you will have something like a hexagon with a total of 36 stitches, since they are in a cluster of 3 and 12 clusters in total
Take colour of Round 1 and make slip knot, start in chain 2 space in the corner, because this will give it a better look rather than start from other points
Step 1: ch 3, 2dc in chain 2 space
Step 2: ch 3, 3dc in the same space
Step 3: SC in the next chain 1 space
Step 4: 3dc in the next chain 2 space
Step 5: ch 3, 3dc in the same space
Step 6: repeat steps 3,4 & 5 (4 more times)
Step 7: SC in the next chain 1 space,
Step 8: join with SS in the 1st dc, ch1, cut the yarn and secure it by pulling the yarn
You will have a total of 36 stitches. This is because the stitches are in a cluster of 3 and there are 12 clusters in total.
Finally, secure the loose ends with help of a yarn needle.
