How to crochet a star stitch pattern back and forth


In this DROPS video we show how to crochet a star stitch pattern back and forth.

You start by crocheting an uneven number of chain sts.
You need a minimum of 7 ch for 1 star, 9 ch makes 2 stars, 11 ch makes 3 stars and so on. On our sample we ch 13 for 4 stars.
Row 1 (RS): pick up 5 sts starting in 2nd ch from hook = 6 sts on hook, make a yo and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1 which creates a hole on top of the 6 sts, *pick up 1 st in the hole, 1 st in the side of the last st of 6 sts, 1 st in the same ch as the last st of 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in each of next 2 chain = 6 sts on hook, make a yo and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1*, repeat *-*. Make 1 htr in last ch.
Row 2 (WS): ch 2, work 2 htr in “each star hole”, end row with 1 htr in last st.
Row 3: ch 3, pick up 1 st in 2nd and 3rd chain from hook, 1 st in first 3 sts on row = 6 sts on hook, make a yo and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1, *pick up 1 st in the hole, 1 st in the side of the last st of 6 sts, 1 st in the same st as the last st of 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in each of next 2 sts = 6 sts on hook, make a yo and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1*, repeat *-*. Make 1 htr in last ch.
Repeat row 2 and 3 for star pattern.
