Crochet Star Stitch Written Instructions with Photos
The Crochet Star Stitch is worked over an odd number of stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 25 single crochet. The stitch pattern begins with row 2. I’ve also included a finishing row to end your swatch with a row of single crochet. The first and last rows of single crochet are simply to neaten up the top and bottom of your swatch if you want to keep it for future reference. I like to staple mine to an index card with the name of the pattern on it.
Row 1 (WS): FSC an odd number of stitches.
Ch an even number of stitches, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
