This crochet stitch pattern is worked over two rows and can be stacked or separated by rows. In the first row, you work the bottom half of the star by making clusters of 5 single crochet stitches worked together. In the second row, all the stars are completed with half double crochet stitches worked into the center of each cluster from the previous row.
It’s important to note that this is a stitch that has a “right” side and a wrong side. Odd number rows are the “right” side.
It is a unique technique with an original look but it builds upon basic crochet skills, which makes it is surprisingly easy to learn. We all learn in different ways so it can be helpful to look at different sets of basic instructions when learning a new technique like this.
