MAKE: Crochet Snowflake Garland by Karen Jinks of www.karenjinks.co.uk


Work 6 ch. In first chain from the needle work 1 dc, in second chain work 1 htr, in next 2 chains work 2 tr and in last work 1 dtr. Join point to the centre of the star ring in the 5th stitch on the round after the original chain.


Try out something different to decorate your house or tree at Christmas with this lovely crochet star garland. Great for using up odd bits of wool that you may have stashed, it works just as well in bright festive colours as it does in the white I’ve used here.


I’ve used a size 3mm crochet hook which produces stars that are roughly 6.5cm in diameter, and double knit weight cotton yarn. Different yarns and different sized needles will make stars of varying sizes.

To make the stars: Base Ring - Make 2 ch, 5 dc in second stitch in chain and join with a slip stitch to make the first ring.


Round 1 - 1 ch, 2 dc in each of next stitch – 10 stitches total and join ring with a slip stitch.


Round 2 - 1ch, *3 dc in first stitch, 2dc in next* repeat from * to * and join ring with a slip stitch, total 25 stitches.


Round 3 - Make the star point.


Repeat until all 5 points of star are worked and finish with a slip stitch. Tie off the ends and weave in then press lightly with a steam iron to flatten them.


When you have enough stars you can attach them to a length of yarn or chain them together as illustrated. Tie loops on either end and hang! Abbreviations: ch = chain stitch dc = double crochet tr = treble crochet dtr = treble crochet
