Starburst Motif Pattern


Starburst Motif
I made this star burst motif for a holiday ornament swap I participate in each year.  I love to use bright contrasting colors but this could also be made in more subdued colors or even a single color.  Add a hook or simply make a loop of yarn to hang the ornament.

Crocheted motifs make excellent Christmas tree ornaments because they are lightweight and won't shatter if when your cat knocks them to the floor.  Use them to decorate a wrapped present, a hostess gift or a plate of cookies.  String them together as a garland.  There are hundreds of way to use these motifs.


This pattern is a great way to use up scrap yarn.  You only need about 15 yards all together.  I used a size g hook but any similar sized hook will work.

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to help you.





Foundation: With color A, ch 3, sl st into 3rd ch from the hook to form a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 2, put 12 hdc into the ring, sl st to top of ch 2, fasten off
