Crochet Star Stitch
The star stitch can be intimidating, especially when you only have a book as a resource to learn the stitch! I tried to learn this stitch years ago when YouTube wasn’t a great resource for leaning new crochet stitches as it is now.
I finally got around to learning this pretty star stitch, and I love it! It’s really not as hard as it seems. It’s a matter of placing your hook in the right places. Once you’ve got that down, it’s smooth sailing from there!
Below you will find a table with common blanket sizes. I’ve also included the beginning number of chains you will want to start with for that particular size under the chart.
Assuming your gauge/tension is the same as mine, the beginning chain will give you the width of the blanket size desired.
You can also begin the blanket by chaining until it’s the desired width you want your blanket. Make sure the chain is an odd number.
Beginning Chain Counts for Different Blanket Sizes
- Security – 49
- Baby – 101
- Toddler – 139
- Lapghan – 121
- Throw – 173
- Twin – 195
- Queen – 295
- King – 355

Crochet Star Blanket Pattern
5 skeins Loop and Threads Impeccable in Aran (Category 4, 258 yds per skein)
Caron Big Cake in Blueberry Torte
Caron Big Cake in Shadowberry
Large Clover Pom Pom Maker (85mm)
Tapestry needle and Scissors
*Amounts of yarn is for the Lapghan size.
For the half double crochet rows, I used the Aran color. I alternated the Caron Big Cake yarn colors for the star stitch rows.
Beginning chain of the hdc rows does not count as a stitch.
Learn how to crochet the star stitch here with this video tutorial. It is a 2 row repeat that will be used in the pattern and referred to as “star stitch row”. Since we are not working the star stitch into the beginning chain, you can see at 8:50 into the video how you start the star stitch row for this blanket.
Finished dimensions of the blanket I made: 38″ x 50″ with the border. This is about the size of a lapghan.
See above for the blanket chart to see what size you would like to make and the corresponding chain count beneath the chart.
Gauge: 4″ = 13 st in hdc
Row 1: Ch 121, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and across, turn (119)
Row 2: Ch 1, hdc across, turn (119)
Row 3-4: Star Stitch Row. Learn how to make the star stitch (2 row repeat) here.
Row 5-6: Ch 1, hdc across, turn
Repeat Rows 3-6 until desired length.
Row 1: Single crochet around the entire border evenly. One single crochet per row on the sides.
Row 2: Starting in a corner, Ch 2, and make 3 double crochets in that same stitch, skip 1, dc in next, dc in skipped st, repeat around making 3 dc in each corner. Join to first st.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Make yarn pom poms and attach to each corner. These pom poms will need to be removed when laundered, so I tied it twice on each corner (not too tight) and loosely weaved in the ends.
If and when you need to remove the pom poms, you should be able to take the knot out with the help of a needle.
