Simple crochet star pattern.
There are so many free crochet star patterns out there, but this one is very basic and nothing fancy they are crocheting all in one piece, so there is no sewing involved. Moreover, they almost look like a flower.
We will probably start with a magic adjustable ring to create the center part of these Christmas star ornaments, then slowly crocheted the five points by adding them one by one with basic crochet stitches.
So, I whipped up about a dozen of these star motif for my friend to make into a garland to hang on her wall.

They look so cute and really complete the look of the theme.
