Learn the Star Stitch

This star stitch is very intimidating to look at in pattern books because it does require you to envision where the stitches are to go.

Truth is, once you get it… Batta Boom Batta Bing.

To Make Different Sizes

Multiple of 2 sts + 1.

Remember the + number at the end of the sentence means that you are to add  chains at the very end to maintain the pattern as written.

You can make dish clothes and small projects using this stitch. The stitching is tight and looks amazing.

Video Tutorial

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    OTL – Where’s the video for the star stitch? There are only two videos of a drone. Will go elsewhere.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I confirmed you were right and have no idea why the video had been switched. I have corrected it behind the scenes. Again, thanks for letting me know so I could fix it. Michael

  2. Nancy Marino says:

    Thanks for the title, Money… clarified a pattern I have even though my pattern uses hdc instead of dc and the end sets/! ha are different. Very helpful and pretty. Appreciate your hard work and devotion to the craft.

  3. Fawn says:

    really wish there were written instructions on this as i mostly crochet on the go, not always at home where i have access to watch the video

  4. Pam says:

    It’s a pretty pattern and easy to learn, but when I tried it, I discovered I didn’t care for the look.
    Maybe someday something will strike me and I’ll give it another try; maybe it was the yarn or colors I used.

  5. Deb says:

    This is beautiful, Mikey. Thanks for sharing.

    1. lynn says:

      hi deb. click on the video up above that says mystery afghan. that is the star stitch video 🙂

  6. Belinda says:

    I didn’t watch the video. I would how ever like the written pattern to read before I watch it.

  7. Sheila says:

    No, I am not seeing anything that explains how to do the star stitch. Every time I click on the How to do the Star Stitch I get just another picture of it. No instructions!!!

    1. Sheila says:

      this is Sheila: Never mind my previous comment I found the tutorial but it had the picture and the title of the Mystery Afghan. Sorry for my confusion

  8. Cathy Werner says:

    Can you either e-mail me or tell me where to get the written pattern for the star stitch. THANKS

  9. Mary Hanke says:

    Mikey, please send me the written instructions for the star stick and the wheel stitch. Thanks.

  10. Chris says:

    I too would like to have the written instructions with the video. I don’t have enough data in my plan for all the videos.

  11. Bonnie. Whitney says:

    Mickey? I thought it was Mikey! Can you co.par patterns so we can download them?

  12. Pamela Dow says:

    I love this idea Mikie, there awesome .

  13. Rosie says:

    You are absolutely amazing. I was just looking at a hook case pattern that featured this stich. Thier explanation confused me so much I my brain hurt. An hour later I’m looking here to ease my aching brain and boom. It’s as if you knew I needed you. Thank you. You are my hero with hook and yarn. I now can create my hook case and whatever other things my deranged yet creative little mind can come up with. I am so excited I learned a new stich.

  14. Mary Quigley says:

    Hello Mikey, Please send me the written pattern for Moss Crochet Stitch & Crochet Star Stitch. Thank you. Mary.

  15. After watching this tutorial I am off to find something to make with it.

  16. Elizabeth Stumpf says:

    I am left handed and it’s hard to find a crocheting beginner book for left handed people

  17. Ruthie says:

    give us the instructions. i would like to do some of the patterns, but don’t have time to go from link to link all the time.

    You weren’t out to lunch, you shot yourself in the foot

  18. dianne says:

    1. karenmaddox50@gmail.com says:

      Love this stitch and you are easy to follow. I seems to have increased a whole star on my practice swatch.

  19. Nikki says:

    Is the pattern written somewhere? I do better when I read the patterns.

  20. barb says:

    Can this stitch make for a good blanket and what size of needle to you suggest?

  21. Susan Guzman says:

    I am going to try this, you make it look so easy

  22. Becky says:

    I don’t understand lingo when it comes to crocheting…I had a friend that helped me occasionally but I’m a hands on learner. What do I do to help me with that

    1. Becky, watch the video tutorials a few times. Then start the tutorial, watch the first step, pause the tutorial, and try to copy the steps Mikey has shown.

      When your results look like his, then start the tutorial again.

      Repeat these steps.

      I hope that helps you.

  25. Linda A-Blom says:

    This is really neat and mikey did such a great job. Thank you for using a bernet baby blanket yarn so it was easier to see. Good Job!

  26. Mikey, you are always bang on. You make this world a better place by just being you. Thanks to you and the whole Crochet Crowd for bringing so much joy and happiness into my life. I am very grateful.
