Introducing the Star Stitch – this one is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

Y’all, I’m on a roll! I think that this is like my 4th stitch tutorial in the past week and I’m going strong! I have so many stitches that I can’t wait to share with everyone. I actually can’t believe that I’ve done so many so quickly. I have made written, picture and video tutorials for them all and that usually takes a LOT of time.

I’m usually lucky if I can get myself to video 1 or 2 new videos a months because that’s probably my least favorite part, making and editing the videos. Maybe it’s just because I don’t like to hear my self talk or I feel like I just ramble…. who knows, lol.

Anyway, I have a pattern that I have been working on using this stitch along with a pretty yarn – Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek in Windswept Wishes

Everyone has been loving this yarn color with this stitch and I can’t wait to show y’all what I made with it!

This Stitch is also known as the “Marguerite stitch”

This stitch is NOT reversible, it has a ‘right’ side and a ‘wrong’ side’

It’s basically made up of a 2 row repeat.

I have included the written, picture & video tutorial in this post.

Stitch Key –

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch (es)
  • sc = single crochet
  • yo = yarn over
  • sl st= slip stitch

Star Stitch –

Start by chaining any odd number of stitches, in the 2nd ch from hook sc and sc in each ch st across. turn your work

Ch 3. Insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. *Insert hook into next ch, pull up a loop, repeat from * until you have 6 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on your hook. Ch 1 to close star stitch (eye of star stitch). 

*Insert hook into eye of star stitch, pull up a loop. Insert hook between the last two posts of the previous star stitch, pull up a loop. Insert hook in the same stitch as the last post of the previous star stitch, pull up a loop. Insert hook and pull up a loop over next 2 stitches. (6 loops on hook) Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. Ch 1 to close star *

Repeat from * to * across until you finish the last star stitch. Hdc in last stitch (same stitch as last star stitch)

For the next row, Ch 2 and turn. Sk hdc from previous row. 2 Hdc in the eye of each star from the previous row. Hdc in the top of last star stitch.

Keep repeating those 2 rows to continue making the star stitch!

I hope that y’all have enjoyed this tutorial! I would absolutely love to see what you make using this stitch. Be sure to tag me @okiegirlblingnthings on Instagram so I can see!

  1. Thanks so much for this, super easy to follow. Couple of questions though: the written pattern says to do a row of single crochets once initial chain is completed, but the video goes straight into creating the first star stitch. Also, after finishing the first row of star stitches the written pattern says chain one but the video Says to chain 2. Can you confirm? Thank you in advance!

    1. 🙂 you can start it both ways either with a row of single crochet or just start the stars right after you make you chain stitches. It was easier for me to write it out starting with a row of single crochet and when I recorded the video, I probably forgot which way I done it 😂 I’ll go change the written pattern bc it should be a ch 2. Hope this helps!

  2. Could you please tell me how much yarn you would need for the start stitch blanket. Probably size 50 x 65. Yarn bee same yarn Thank you
