Any odd Number
The star crochet stitch is perfect when you want to give your project a little extra something. It’s beautiful on it’s own or paired with another stitch for a unique pattern within your project.
The star crochet stitch is a versatile stitch so it works well with pretty much any weight yarn you want to throw at it. Choose a smooth yarn so you can really see the stitch pattern or try a lightly textured yarn for even more character.
This stitch it notorious for uneven edges so it’s best used for projects where the edges will be hidden in a seam.
