Learn How a Star is Crocheted
This pattern uses the herringbone half double crochet stitch, single crochet stitch, double crochet and the slip stitch to create a star.
The herringbone half double crochet or hhdc is quite easy to learn! It’s worked similar to a half double crochet but you will pull back through the first loop first then two loops to finis the stitch.
Check out this hddc video tutorial for extra help.
For the full tutorial check out the pattern below for step-by-step instructions but first I want to tell you about the yarn you’ll need.
The Yarn That’s Perfect For This Crochet Star
I used Brava Worsted from Knit Picks / We Crochet for this tutorial. Brava is a 100% acrylic yarn that is available in 45+ colors and quite inexpensive!
I have to admit my last order I got ten different colors, and I was impressed with all of them!
