Suggested Supplies

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.

Supplies used in demonstration video:
