Crescent Moon Free Pattern!

Hello! I've been crocheting stars everyday for #the100dayproject of #100daysofkaylasstars on Instagram. For more information about my project, click here for my post on Instagram. Last week I came up with a very easy tiny star pattern and I released a video tutorial and the free pattern.

I posted this photo, to go along with the free star pattern, on Instagram and the response was fantastic! I also got a lot of requests for the moon pattern so today I am sharing the moon pattern for free! Scroll down for the free pattern.

Crescent Moon

US Terminology


With the recommended size hook and yarn, the moon is approximately 3.25 inches tall and 2 inches wide. Play with different hook sizes and yarn weights to get the size moon you would like. 


- Size H (5.00 mm) crochet hook
- Medium 4 Weight Yarn (Sugar n Cream)
- Scissors
- Darning needle
- Stitch marker
- Optional: Small amount of polyester fiberfill 


ch: chain
sc: single crochet
2sc: single crochet increase


This pattern is worked in a spiral. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.

The Pattern

R1: Make a loose slip knot or a magic ring and ch 1. Put 8 sc into the loose slip knot. =8
Pull on the tail end to close the hole.

R2: 2sc into each stitch around. =16

R3: *2sc into the next stitch, sc into the next stitch. Repeat from the star around. =24

R4: *2sc into the next stitch, sc into the next 2 stitches. Repeat from the star around. =32

R5: *2sc into the next stitch, sc into the next 3 stitches. Repeat from the star around. =40

R6: *2sc into the next stitch, sc into the next 4 stitches. Repeat from the star around. =48

R7: *2sc into the next stitch, sc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from the star around. =56

Cut the yarn, leaving the tail long enough to whip stitch the two sides together. Pull the tail end through the last stitch and knot and weave in the other tail end. Fold the moon in half and whip stitch it together. If you would like, stuff the moon with a small amount of fiberfill, half way through sewing the two sides together. Weave in the end.

The End!

  1. Easy to follow and beautiful moon at the end part, not at the beginning thou only at the end. :D Thank you for the beautiful pattern.

  2. I'm only getting an octagon as I stitch this. Just wondering if I've made a mistake? Trying to make a larger one and don't want to keep going if I need to start over.

    1. How many rows have you finished?

    2. Up to row 7. I will say though that I'm using smaller yarn - size 3 - with a 4.5mm hook, so it's really tiny right now.

  4. Hello! May I ask if you have a pattern for a sailor collar like sailormoon's? I am thinking of creating a rectangle and attach a half crescent but seems like it is not working. If you have a paid pattern, I'll be happy to pay for it. Can you send me email please?

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this sweet pattern. I’m making a garter stitch baby blanket for our expected first great grandson, in variegated blues (dark to light) and wanted to appliqué a moon and stars on it to go with the outer space theme for the baby’s room. These are perfect, though I plan to enlarge the moon, if I can! Thanks again for sharing your talent!
