Things to Make: Crochet Snowflake Star Garland - Free Pattern!

I've been so busy working on things for my business and family, that I haven't had much time to post any of my new projects lately!  Well, I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and so I'm posting this cute little snowflake garland pattern today!

Even though I am LDS, when I was growing up, my parents always tried to expose us to lots of culturally diverse experiences.  My grandmother (on my dad's side) was jewish, and so my parents decided that when we were children we would learn about and celebrate Hanukkah!  And we did - every year!

I have some wonderful memories of the family lighting our menorah, playing dreidel, and eating latkes!  As a mother now myself, I've tried to continue some of those traditions with my own children.  This week we'll be enjoying some yummy latkes and gold chocolate gelt!

This weekend marked the start of Hanukkah celebrations, and I wanted to create a fun decoration for our home, to help set the mood!  

I'd been looking around for a simple crochet snowflake pattern for quite some time, and hadn't found one I liked well I decided I'd combine a traditional Star of David and snowflake to make my own unique version!


After a little trial and error I whipped up this garland in no time! Here's the pattern for my:

Crochet Snowflake Star 



Worsted weight yarn - medium weight (4)

(I used Red Heart Shimmer in Snow...I love that it has little threads of iridescent sparkle throughout!  But I also think a pretty pale blue would lovely, too!)

Crochet hook - size I (5.50 mm)

Tapestry or yarn needle



ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

hdc = half-double crochet

dc = double crochet

trc = treble crochet

rep = repeat

st = stitch

sp = space

rnd = round

beg = beginning


This pattern is written in Standard American terminology and is worked in rounds.

For the Snowflake Star:

Ch 4, join with sl st to first ch to form a loop.

Rnd 1: Sc 12 times in loop. Join with sl st to first sc.

Rnd 2: *Ch 3, sl st in next 2 sc.* Rep from * to * around. (6 loops made)

Rnd 3: *(Working in loop: sc, dc, ch 2, dc, sc) sl st in next st.*  Rep from * to * around. (6 points made)

Rnd 4: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch2), *sc in top of point, ch 2, dc in sl st from previous rnd, ch 2.*  Rep from * to * around to beginning. Sl st in 3rd chain of beg ch 5. (12 ch 2 sp made)

Rnd 5: *Working in ch 2 sp: sc, hdc, dc, (trc, ch 2, trc in sc from previous rnd), dc, hdc, sc. Sl st in dc from previous rnd.* Rep from * to * around, ending with sl st in last st. (6 points made)

Fasten off, weave in ends. Make as many snowflakes as you would like! (At this point you could starch your snowflakes so that they stay stiff, but I didn't bother.)

For the garland:

Ch 40, *sc in point, ch 20.* Repeat from * to * as many times as needed to joing all of your snowflakes together, then ch 40 and fasten off.

I love the way this pattern turned out!  I may make a bunch of these guys to hang on our christmas tree, too!


Happy Hanukkah!!

Enjoy the pattern, and feel free to make as many of these as you would like, but please keep in mind that this pattern is intended to be used for personal use only.  Do NOT sell or rewrite this pattern in any form to sell.

Round 5


Thanks for the free pattern! This is my very first attempt at crochet. I'm a knitter mostly, but I really want to make a cute homemade garland for our very first Christmas tree in our new home this year and your snowflakes are adorable! I have been looking up all the stitches as I and so far my first snowflake is.... OK. I am stuck on rnd 5, however, and I don't know anyone who can spell it out for me. Any chance you would be willing to make a video or picture tutorial?

Thanks so much!

Good luck for the next!

round 5

I'm also totally confused by round 5. Would love pictures or video.


Here it is

Some adjustments to the pattern

I love these little snowflakes but found row 4 and 5 difficult on the first try. Also I switched to a 4.25 mm hook.
Row 4 :
Chain 5, sc in top of point, chain 2. Dc in slip st on previous round, chain 2. Repeat until you come to the chain of 5. Ship stitch in the third chain. This leaves 2 chains to form the first of the 12 chain 2 spaces required for the next row.

Row 5:
I* in the chain 2 space sc,HUC,dc. Trc in sc from the previous row, chain 2 and do another Trc in the same stitch. In next chain 2 space create the other half of the point by doing dc,hcand sc. Then slip stitch in dc from the previous round.

It really helps to look at the pictures from the original pattern. Hopes this helps!


Hi i e mailed you last year as it xmas again still trying to understand row 4 and 5 do you have a tutorial for this pattern
