This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

Hi Crochet Friend!

It’s day 2 of the Creation Quiet Book CAL, and that means we will be making a sun, a moon, and a star. (Yes, I know the Creation Bible Story says this is on the 3rd day,, but the first two days are pretty hard to crochet…)

If you missed Day 1, click here.

Anyway, these are very easy patterns to work up, but I wanted to make sure I had a video for each, just in case you need them. So check out the written pattern and video tutorials for the sun, moon, and star below!

See you back here on Monday!

Use these free patterns and video tutorials to crochet sun, crescent moon, and small star appliqués. Easy and beginner patterns.
