Christmas Star Ornament Knitting Pattern

Designed by Barbara Breiter

Christmas star ornament knitting pattern

Knit this Christmas star ornament with any yarn; it adds holiday sparkle if you use a yarn with metallic fibers. For the ornament shown, I used Rowan Glimmer Print (a bulky tape) and size 11 US needles. It measures 5½ inches across. A lighter weight yarn and smaller needles will make a smaller ornament. You could also spread on glue and then sprinkle glitter over it and let it dry. Or, knit in some shiny beads!
