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

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!
