Wandering Star by Melu Crochet

This year I have been organised and designed this lovely little Wandering Star decoration that works up really quickly in time for Christmas. It uses super chunky yarn for that instant satisfaction feeling 😁 and looks so soft and squishy everyone will want one! 

I have decided to put it on my website as a free pattern to say thank you for all of your support over the last few years 🥰🤗😁 it really is a wonderful thing being part of our yarny community 😁

This pattern uses Hobbii Honey Bunny yarn that was kindly gifted to me by @hobbii_yarn for their #HaveYourSelfAMerryLittleDIY challenge. It has been such a pleasure to use, such vibrant colours, a lovely soft texture that doesn’t shed and SO squishy!!! Thanks so much Hobbii 🤗

Turning chain does not count as a stitch throughout

Start each round in same st as turning ch

For help with Rounds 1 to 3, see my YouTube video:

Round 1

Repeat from * three more times

sc3tog, hdc in next st,

2dc into same st as the first tr of the round,

sl st to join into the first tr of the round, (40st total)

Cut yarn and fasten off

Make another star, this time do not cut yarn, but continue to ‘joining’.


For help with joining, see my YouTube video:

With Right Side facing out on both stars, rotate the first star so that the starting chain is not in the same position as the second star:

place stars together Ch1,

Add stitch markers to the top of each tr stitch to hold the stars in place so that the stitches on each star line up

sc through both sides of the star in each stitch around, until you reach the 5th point,

Hide your ends as you go by tucking them inside the star,

Stuff the star with small amounts of filling at a time, gently pushing it into the points of the star.

Continue to sc in each st to close,

sl st to join into the first st of the round,


sl st to join into the first ch to make a hanging loop

Fasten off and cut yarn and sew in end,

that’s it, you’re finished!
