Lucita puff stitch star inspiration
I love Christmas celebrations and the decorations, and while I don’t usually make themed items I could not resist the opportunity to make this 6 point star crochet pattern when the opportunity arose to join in the Holiday Decor Hop hosted by Cosy Rosie UK.
Stars are one of my favourite types of Christmas ornament and they are fairly quick to work up. Great as stash busters, crochet star patterns can be made with a variety of points. This 6 point puff stitch star is a variation on a granny square motif that I have been working on but still have not perfected!
6 point star crochet pattern yarn and materials
To make my Lucita 6 point star, I used 20g of Paintbox Aran Cotton in Paper White. I managed 3 stars without the hanging loop and 1 with the loop from a single 50g skein, making this a great project for bunting or scrap busting!

Puff stitch star pattern info and tips
Lucita 6 point star is an easy to work up beginning crochet star pattern. However, the number of puffs and smallish hook I used with the Aran/Worsted weight yarn means that it hurts your wrist a little if you make a few in a row. This is because of the thickness of the yarn and I pull my stitches a little tightly, plus there are a number of puff stitches in a small space.
To combat this – use a thinner weight of yarn, and a slightly smaller hook. The end result will be a smaller star, however it will be kinder to your wrists and still look cute – win.
