  • Crochet Star Stitch Written Instructions (Stars and Rows)

    By -

    The crochet star stitch is a textured crochet stitch that looks like a starburst. It’s made with multiple loops and is sometimes called the Marguerite stitch, the daisy stitch, or even a spiked cluster. To make the classic star stitch pattern, you crochet rows of half double crochet stitches between the rows of stars. You can make star stitches with a varying number of spikes, so you will find different instructions for different variations on this stitch.

    Crochet star stitch has a beautiful thick texture and is great for dense projects, such as blankets and winter hats. Follow the instructions below to crochet this star stitch variation: crochet stars and rows stitch.
