I was looking to create a quick gift I could send to my friends that would put a smile on their faces during the UK’s Lockdown 3.0. I think most people have found this third lockdown harder due to the cold, winter weather, a Christmas not celebrated as it should be and only a dim light of hope of normality.

This little crochet star could be used in so many more ways than adding it to a shadow box frame though:

  • Add it to a gift tag when wrapping presents
  •  Make 6 and create a garland
  • Pop it onto a handmade card

It’s the perfect quick and easy crochet gift that everyone will love! So, brighten someone’s day, and crochet a star the easy way!
