Free Knitting Pattern Luxury Holiday Garland

With the holidays fast approaching, I wanted to create something you could decorate your home with. It didn't take long for me to realize that stars are perfect because they are universally appealing regardless of what holiday you celebrate, and if made small enough, one could easily knit 1-2 (or more!) of them in an evening. I made this sweet little garland using each of the yarns from our Luxury Fiber Sampler but it's also great for using up scraps of yarn. Each star uses 15-20 yards of a Fingering, Sport, or DK weight yarn knit on US 2.5 needles (or whatever size you need to get gauge.)

The stars are the perfect as ornaments, garlands, coasters, or any other use you can think of! These are surprisingly fun to knit with simple short row shaping (wrap and turns), and it's even more fun when you get to knit with a variety of different fibers! The garland is created by connecting all of the stars together with a single crochet chain and I used decorative buttons to create loops for hanging on hooks, although it's not necessary.

From all of us here at Jimmy Beans Wool, we wish you a very happy (and crafty) holiday season!
