ROW 1 (RS): Pick up 1 st in each of the next ch 5, beg in 2nd ch from hook, make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1 to make a hole over the 6 sts, * pick up 1 st in the hole, pick up 1 st in the side of the last of the 6 sts, pick up 1 st in same ch as the last of the 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in each of the next 2 ch = 6 sts on hook, make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1 *, repeat from *-*. Work 1 hdc in last ch. Turn.

ROW 2 (WS): ch 2 (= hdc), work 2 hdc in every "star hole", finish row with 1 hdc in last st. Turn. There are now 19 stars on row and 1 hdc in each side.

ROW 3: ch 3, pick up 1 st in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, pick up 1 st in the first 3 sts on row = 6 sts on hook, make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1, * pick up 1 st in the hole, pick up 1 st in the side of the last of the 6 sts, pick up 1 st in same st as the last of the 6 sts was picked up in, pick up 1 st in each of the next 2 sts = 6 sts on hook, make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1 *, repeat *-*.
