Ara Star Ornament – Free Crochet Pattern

I love the classic white lights on a Christmas tree. There is something so gentle and calming about it. So, when I was making the Ara Blanket Square I realized that the star would also make a pretty tree ornament. I’ve adjusted and tweaked it a bit and now there is the Ara Star Ornament. Make just one or many to trim your tree, or gift them for someone else’s tree.
