Tags: hats, slippers, star pattern,

In this DROPS video we show how to crochet a star stich pattern in the round.

We crochet 25 LOOSE ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.

ROUND 1: Work 3 ch, pick up 5 sts, beg in 2nd ch from hook (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, work 1 ch to make a hole over the 6 sts, * pick up 1 st in the hole, pick up 1 st in the side on 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 2 next ch (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 11 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 2: 2 ch, work 2 htr in each "star hole", finish round with 1 sl st in 2nd ch at beg of round = 12 stars.
ROUND 3: 3 ch, pick up 1 st in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, 1 st in back loop of the first 3 htr on row (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, 1 ch, * pick up 1 st in the hole, 1 st in the side on the last of the 6 sts, 1 st in back loop of same htr as the last of the 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in back loop of each of the 2 htr (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 11 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Repeat from round 2 and 3 to the desired length.

(If you want you can sew a few stitches in the transition between row 3 and 2, if you think the holes are too large).

Hej! Bra video! Jag undrar om man skulle vilja göra valfri längd eller om man använder tunnare garn när man virkar detta mönster runt , hur är mönstret delbart dvs hur många maskor ska man lägga upp "per stjärna" så det går jämt ut? Här har man startat med 25 lm. Hoppas ni förstår min fråga.

Hej Sophia, du får 12 stjärnor i det här mönstret. Klicka också gärna på bilderna med samma mönster under videoen :)

Très déçue de la vidéo et des explications. Ça fait des semaines que je me casse la tête à comprendre pourquoi je ne suis pas fichu de crocheter mes chaussettes Sweet Spirited et enfin j'ai compris en allant voir un autre vidéo sur internet. Le point d'étoiles se fait sur un nombre pair de mailles + 3 ml. Et le deuxième rang d'étoiles 1 ml pour commencer le rang suffit!!

Hej! Jag har virkat runt runt, enligt instruktionerna, men ändå blir skarven längst bak lite sned. Stjärnorna kommer liksom inte rakt ovanpå varandra. Jag kan inte komma på vad som är fel, har ni några tips?

Hej Amanda, kan det være fordi du starter stjernen i en maske tidligere end hvad vi gør?

Merci beaucoup, après le tour de cou pour ma fille, au tour du bonnet :). Et, vraiment merci pour ce petit tuto très bien expliqué.
