How do you do star stitch?
Start Stitch – row and stitch multiples
The first row – the star row – creates the ‘stars’, which are essentially made up of a single crochet 5 together (sc5tog) (UK double crochet 5 together) – one for each point I guess – followed by a chain 1, which creates the ‘eye’ or centre of the star.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
