The Bethlehem Star Crochet Christmas Wall Hanging

This project for Christmas is simple to follow along with and creates a peaceful scene for your home decor. 

Hello fellow Crocheters! Below, you’ll find a project that’s perfect for some easygoing crochet as you prep for winter and Christmas. The Bethlehem Star crochet wall hanging is a simple project that uses just a few colors to create a peaceful, “Silent Night” type of scene. It’s perfect for swapping out your wall decor when your tree goes up and lights are getting hung. Or, you can simply leave it up as a winter-themed crochet piece all season long.

About This Project

Gauge and Sizing

The gauge for this project is 12 stitches and 13 rows of single crochet(link single crochet tutorial post) per 4×4” square. This creates a wall hanging with a finished size of 14×16”. 

However, since this project is a simply shaped wall hanging that is only done in one piece, matching the gauge exactly will not make or break your success with it. A slightly different gauge will simply affect the amounts of yarn that you use by a little bit. 

If gauge is a concept that you’re not familiar with, check out this post to get more confident with what exactly gauge is and how to measure it. 

Materials Needed

To make this project, you will need the following: 

  • In aran yarn, approximately 42 yards of light grey, 16 yards of dark grey, 160 yards of blue, and 10 yards of white
  • H/5.00mm hook
  • A stick or dowel approximately 18-20” in length
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle(optional, for weaving in ends)

SKill Level

The Bethlehem Star Wall Hanging is a great project for any crocheter who is at an ambitious or advanced beginner level. The main panel of this wall hanging is worked completely in single crochet, which is nice and easy. If you are able to crochet with consistent stitches and keep your edges straight, then your wall hanging will turn out nice and clean looking. 

Secondly, the main skill that you will want to have in this project is the ability to change colors. And to be honest, you really do not need to make perfect color changes every time in this project to have it turn out well. My own star in this wall hanging could have been better with some cleaner color changes, yet the finished product is just right. Being comfortable with having multiple ends at the back of your work, or carrying your yarn along a few stitches using the tapestry crochet method (I did some of both) will make things easier.

Variation Ideas 

Even though the color chart and pattern directions for this project tell you exactly where to change color, the biggest variation possibility is that you don’t have to stick to that completely. With the exception of the star, you don’t have to stress too much if you switch colors in the hills of this picture in slightly different places than I do. Feel free to tweak it a bit, or at the very least give yourself a pass on teeny tiny mistakes!
