The Star Stitch is one of my favorites, and this project makes good use of it in both the body of the dishcloth as well as the decorative border. The designer describes how to work the stitch but instead of her own video, she posted a link to a similar design. While I didnt like that particular video, there are several YouTube selections specifically on the Star Stitch.

I really like this crochet stitch pattern! It is so pretty! I have not done this stitch before, so I am looking forward to crocheting a dishcloth with it. Kitchen cotton yarn is good to use for absorption and strength in the dishcloth. You could also use another type of yarn for blanket squares.

This is such a pretty crochet stitch pattern! Be sure and use kitchen cotton if you are making dishcloths or washcloths, as this type of cotton will absorb water. You can also make these squares for a blanket by using other types of yarn. I think a variegated yarn would be so pretty for either dishcloths or blanket squares.

I really like this stitch (had never tried it before), since I crochet looser than many others, using the 5.0 mm hook, I reached 19.05 cm square with just the main body. This was a decent size for a dishcloth, so stopped there. Will try a smaller hook next time and add the edging! Thanks for posting this pattern.

i've made many of these and also do not use the border in the patter but just work a simple border around. My friends love to get there as gifts.

I need to know how to do a starburst stitch

This is kinda late, sorry., but just in case: Do your foundation chain. On row 1, single crochet in second chain from hook. In the same chain where your first single crochet is, yarn over and draw a loop through (2 loops on hook). Repeat on next chain (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw another loop (4 loops on hook). You've now stitched in 3 chains. Yarn over again and draw through all 4 loops on your hook. Chain 1. And that's your starburst stitch. Super simple once you've got the rhythm.

This is NOT an easy stitch. Consider changing the ability category to "advanced".

Hi E C Dabis, Thanks so much for the feedback! We've updated the skill level category to Intermediate. --editors of AllFreeCrochet

I've made a few of these and haven't had any problems following the pattern. I prefer not to make the border as called for in the pattern, I just make my own.

@Kl, We've updated the pattern; we apologize for any inconvenience! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I am confused, it says that this is an easy pattern that is great for beginners but then it is rated as an intermediate pattern.

I worked this up today, it is hard on the hands, so I recommend a loose stitch to close the four loop sequence. To be honest, I'm not sure the starburst stitch is all of the problem, or if the damp fall weather played a part, however. The dishcloth came out beautifully despite the discomfort. I did not have a problem following the directions or with the starburst stitch instructions. Overall I really enjoyed working this pattern!

Try this:

Basically, sc in last stitch worked, decrease across two stiches, chain 1 repeat...beautiful stitch. It would be perfect for any project!

The look of the pattern is very cute . Please do a tutorial on it . its really amazing

I found the pattern to be disadvantageously written, but loved the outcome!

Thank you for the pattern. I think it is very pretty and will probably make several in different colors. I have created a few pieces too, but have never written them down. I really appreciate Fave Craft for putting it in the free section for all of us looking for something different. Respectfully Maryday39

@lpyne 9458158, winnieb 3385838, jspitzley 1373914, james1994: We have contacted the designer to see if there is an error in this pattern since so many of you have had trouble with it. Check back soon to see if she has made any corrections! -- AllFreeCrochet Editors

I cannot seem to get this pattern to work out. I am not a newbie to crochet, but I feel that something is missing in the pattern.

I love the look of this pattern but cannot get it to work for me. Can you do a tutorial on it. I cannot figure out how to pull up 2 loops in the same stitch without winding it around the hook. Help !!!

LOVE this pattern! I am eliminating the border and using the pattern for afghan squares :) Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi I get the bottom half of the starburst but not the top of the starburst. Is there a row missing in the instructions?

Hi i love the look of the dishcloth and would love to make it for my mother for her birthday.

James1994

What a marvelous pattern! I am going to make this soon!!! Thanks for having so many great things on your site!

I love this stitch. Haven't done it for a while, so thanks for the reminder. I want to try to do a purse using it. I have some purse patterns and I'm going to adapt this stitch to one of them. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again.

Click on the underlined portion that says "click here for crochet pattern", then when the pattern appears with the photo, either select the ctrl key on your keypad and while you hold it down also the letter "p" will put the page to print. If that doesn't work, you can highlight the text and copy and paste onto a blank document page and print that.

How can I print the pattern, I've tried numerous times with each so called free patterns and can never download the pattern only the photograph. Please let me know how to proceed. Thanks Delores Sherman

What a pretty pattern! I'm thinking it would make a very cute baby afghan! Definitely saving this one! Thanks for sharing!!!
