Hello Friends,Today I decided to learn how to knit the Star Stitch. I found a photo of the Star Stitch last week and I loved how the stars looked like little flowers and I had to try it out for myself. It is a fun stitch to knit and it is done on a repeat of four rows. I posted the pattern and video below that I followed as well if you wanted to try the stitch for yourself!

Video I followed:
I followed Iknitwithcatfur's youtube video. I like her instructions, she speaks clearly and slowly and knits slowly so it is easy to follow.
The Star Stitch Pattern:
Cast on multiples of 4 + 1 so for example, I casted on 17 stitches (16 +1)
Row 1: Knit the entire row
Row 2: purl 1, purl 3 together (keep on needle) then yarn over and purl together, repeat this start stitch to the last stitch then purl the last stitch.
Row 3: Knit the entire row
Row 4: purl 3 stitches separately, purl 3 together (keep on needle) then yarn over and purl together, repeat this start stitch to the last three stitches, then purl the last three stitches separately.
repeat this pattern from row 1 to 4 until you finish your project.
I hope you enjoyed learning about this stitch!
Have a great day :)
