Instructions for Star Stitch Crochet

*I recommend making a swatch to start and get the hang of it. This stitch can be utilized in dishcloths, blankets, scarves to name just a few.

Create a foundation chain in a multiple of 2, in the example I did 20.

Row 1 – Insert hook in 2nd chain from hook, yarn over and pull up a loop. Insert hook into the next foundation chain, yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops). Insert hook into the next foundation chain, yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops). Insert hook into the next foundation chain, yarn over and pull up a loop (5 loops). Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops.

chain 1 (this creates the “eye” or center of the star).

Insert hook in the eye or center of the star, yarn over and draw up a loop. Insert hook in the foundation chain from the last stitch (that has already been “used”). Insert hook in the next foundation chain, yarn over and draw up a loop (4 loops). Insert hook in the next foundation chain, yarn over and draw up a loop (5 loops). Yarn over and draw through all 5 loops. Repeat to the end of the foundation chain (you should have 1 stitch remaining).

Row 2 – ch 2, turn work, and place 2 hdc stitches in each “eye” of the star all the way down. Place 1 hdc in the “turning chain” from the first row.

Row 3 – turn work, chain 3, insert hook into the 2nd chain, yarn over and draw up a loop. Insert hook in 1st chain, yarn over and draw up a loop (3 loops). Insert hook into 1st stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops). Insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (5 loops). Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops.

I really want to teach myself to crochet. I have watched endless videos and I feel each person does things differently. I have been practicing with cotton to make dish cloths just so my practice pieces can be useful. How do I know I'm doing it correctly? I tried reading a pattern and that didnt work out so well. Any ideas before I start a temperature blanket for my grandson.

Again a really neat crochet project to get into. So many good ideas. Thank you for all the ideas and the written and video help a lot. I think this stitch would be good for a scarf. Hope you are having a good start to the week.
