The Primrose Stitch Crochet Tutorial - This is another very pretty stitch with a lovely texture. The first row creates the bottom part of the shell and the second row creates the fan part of the shell. #crochet #crochetstitch #crochetstitchtutorial #crochettutorial #learnhowtocrochet #crochetlove #crochetaddictWelcome to my next installment of the stitch of the month! This month I’m excited to introduce you to the primrose stitch.

This is another very pretty stitch with a lovely texture. It’s a 2-row repeat stitch pattern, that you’ll be able to get the hang of very quickly. The first row creates the bottom part of the shell and the second row creates the fan part of the shell. The only stitches you’ll need to use for this pattern is the single crochet, double crochet, and a half double crochet.

By the time you’ve gotten to the 4th row, you’ll be able to do this stitch pattern in your sleep. It’s the perfect stitch when you’re looking to relax and catch up on your favorite shows. 

The fantastic worsted weight yarn used in this tutorial is Sugar Bush Bold yarn 100% Merino superwash wool – get it here!

PRIMROSE STITCH PATTERN

The Star Stitch Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

Star Stitch Crochet Tutorial - the star stitch has a stunning starburst design, hence the name. The front of the stitch looks different from the back yet the back also has a lovely linear look to it. While this stitch isn't the easiest, it's certainly not overly challenging either. #crochet #crochettutorial #crochetaddict #crochetstitch #crochetvideoThe Star Stitch Crochet Tutorial

Welcome to my next installment of the stitch of the month! This month I’d like to introduce you to the beautiful star stitch.

The star stitch has a stunning starburst design, hence the name. The front of the stitch looks different from the back yet the back also has a lovely linear look to it.

While this stitch isn’t the easiest, it’s certainly not overly challenging either. The start stitch is a 2-row pattern repeat with row 1 forming the bottom of the star and row 2 forming the top.

Once you learn the steps and understand the one tricky section, you’ll find yourself looking for as many star stitch patterns as you can get your hands on. Look out for my upcoming star stitch baby blanket, coming soon!

The fantastic worsted weight yarn used in this tutorial is Cascade 220 color 8012 Doeskin Heather, get it here!

STAR STITCH PATTERN

In U.S. terminology

  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet

Start by chaining multiples of 2 + 2 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 2nd chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop so you have 2 loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the 3rd chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop so you have 3 loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the 4th chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop so you have 4 loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the 5th chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop so you have 5 loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the 6th chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop so you have 6 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook. Ch 1 (this holds all 6 loops together).

*Insert hook into the chain you just made (the hole in the middle of the starburst), yarn over and pull up the loop so there are 2 loops on the hook. Insert hook in between the last and second last post from the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up the loops so there are 3 loops on the hook. Insert hook in the last loop from the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up the loops so there are 4 loops on the hook. Insert hook in the chain and pull up a loop for the next 2 chains for a total of 6 loops on the hook. Ch 1.* 

Repeat from * to * across the rest of the chain, ending with an hdc in the last stitch where you ended the last star stitch.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc into the top of the hdc from the previous row. Ch 1 into the hole or center of the star from the previous row. Ch 2 into the next hole or center of the star. Continue in this manner across the row. End with a sc through the top of the turning chain. Ch 2.

Row 3 (It’s helpful to watch the video for this tricky part at 9:40 in the video): Insert hook into the front loop of the 2nd ch from the hook, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on the hook, insert hook in the back loop of the same ch, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on the hook. Insert hook in the chain and pull up a loop for the next 3 stitches for a total of 6 loops on the hook. 

*Insert hook into the chain you just made (the hole in the middle of the starburst), yarn over and pull up the loop so there are 2 loops on the hook. Insert hook in between the last and second last post from the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up the loops so there are 3 loops on the hook. Insert hook in the last loop from the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up the loops so there are 4 loops on the hook. Insert hook in the chain and pull up a loop for the next 2 chains for a total of 6 loops on the hook. Ch 1.* 

Repeat from * to * across the rest of the chain, ending with an hdc in the last stitch where you ended the last star stitch.

Repeat row 2-3 until you’ve reached your desired length.
