This free crochet pattern is all about small stars and how to make them easily and fast. I recently made an Advent Wreath which needed some stars to make it look even more special than it already is.
This pattern is part of the above-mentioned Advent Wreath which was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns who provided me with some free yarn. The yarn I used was Heartland and it was the best yarn for this project.
This pattern is also part of the Advent Wreath Crochet Along. Be sure to check out the main page for that as well.
I absolutely love this yarn and it is from now on one of my favorite go-to yarns. It is so soft and easy to work with. And let me tell you the colors are incredible.
As this pattern is created for the Advent Wreath, please go to Ravelry and add the entire pattern to your Ravelry Favorites. This is also the place where you could purchase the entire pattern at once, which includes all 6 patterns of the Advent Wreath.
So, if you prefer an ad-free version of this pattern where the pictures are added separately to the back of the pattern (to save ink in case you just want to reference the pictures but not print them), you can purchase the pdf on Ravelry or Etsy below.
So, let me now tell you what you will need to make these awesome looking candles and how to make them very easily.
