This north star ornament looks so easy to make. I wonder how many you could make in just a few hours. You can make them in different colors, to give away as gifts or to keep for yourself. What colors would you make? It would be great to make them in one special color if you decorate your tree that way, or in many different colors!

How easy these are to make. Start out with 8 crochets, and increase for four rounds, 8 crochets each row and you'll end at a count of 40. Basic increasing in rounds. Now, there is a small bit of embroidery required for these, which if you like variety in your crochet projects, I am sure you'll appreciate. If you are a straight up beginner as far as embroidery goes, I say don't fret. She's got a full picture diagram showing how to do the stitches. They are so pretty and classic looking. Again, any ornament can double as a gift topper as well!

This pattern is still available on the Carons website. You can find it here http// == rnament.html?id=199965 . They also have lots of other holiday items that you can knit and crochet. Most are fairly easy but they have something for all skill levels. They project that the materials to complete this will run you around $14.
