The Rustic Star Ornament crochet pattern adds a bit of country charm to any holiday setting!
This year I have been creating a few new Christmas Ornaments for my tree. I love a simple look and believe it brings a certain amount of beauty to a tree! This is the third ornament this year. A couple of weeks ago I published the Rustic Village Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern and then later the Cinnamon Tree Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern. All of the ornaments are made using a 100% worsted weight cotton and a 3.5 mm crochet hook. They are great scrap yarn projects!

The ornament is worked using basic single crochet stitches that are worked in the back loop only. This gives it a simplistic texture. The design is worked by creating two crochet circles. You will then work each of the points individually joining as you go. The Rustic Star ornament works up very quickly! You can leave it as is or add a few beads to it as I have
For this pattern I have used a 100% cotton yarn called Dishie by WeCrochet. It is a worsted/medium weight yarn. You will need two different colours (if you would like yours similar to the ones I have here!) and you will not need much – only about 30-40 yards in total! This is the same yarn that I used in the Rustic Village Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern.
You will also need a 3.5 mm crochet hook. The hook shown in the video below is a 3.5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns.
The pattern will be written out in full below and always remain free on my website, however if your would like to purchase an ad free PDF or add this pattern to your library, you may do so from my Etsy or Ravelry Shops Below:

Free Crochet Pattern:
Star Face (Make 2):
Make a magic ring, ch 1 (alternatively you may chain 2 and work into the 2nd ch from your hook)
Rnd 1: Work 5 sc into the centre of the ring. Do not join but continue working in rounds marking the 1st st with a st marker. Move stitch marker as your work progresses. (5 sts)
Rnd 2: Working in the blo, work 2 sc in the 1st st, 2 sc in each st around. Do not join. (10 sts)
Rnd 3: Working in the blo, *sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next st; Rpt from * around. Do not join. (15 sts)
Rnd 4: Working in the blo, *sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st; Rpt from * around. Do not join. (20 sts)
Rnd 5: Working in the blo, *sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the next st; Rpt from * around. Do not join. (25 sts)
Star Points (Work 5):
For the points, you will hold both sides of the star face together with the wrong sides together. Work in continuous rounds (do not join at the end of each round).
Rnd 1: On one side of the star face, join yarn with a sl st in the blo, ch 1, sc in the 1st st and in each of the next 4 sts on the front side, turn. Now working along the back side and in the blo, sc in each of the next 5 sts until you return to your first st. Do not join.
Rnd 2 onward: Working in the blo (and you are now working across the from side now), *sc2tog over the next 2 sts, sc in each of the next 3 sts; Rpt from * working in continuous rounds until only 4 sts remain. Join with a sl st in the 1st st. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Repeat the above two steps four more times, this time joining your yarn with a sl st in the side of the first star point (this does not count as a stitch and will not be worked into) before working your sc in the blo.
Fasten off, weave in your ends and attach a hanger and bead if desired.
