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


  1. Jane

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

    • 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

    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

    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

    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

    This is beautiful, Mikey. Thanks for sharing.

    • lynn

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

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

  7. Sheila

    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!!!

    • Sheila

      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

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

  9. Mary Hanke

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

  10. 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

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

  12. Pamela Dow

    I love this idea Mikie, there awesome .

  13. Rosie

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

  15. Elizabeth Stumpf

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

  16. 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

  17. loved it first time I found someone who wants to share without it costing something thank you Dianne.

  18. Nikki

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

  19. barb

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

  20. Susan Guzman

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

  21. Becky

    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

    • 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.
