Star Stitch Pattern is a very easy and fun to knit. It has only 4 repeated rows and the best part of it is that you only have to work the knit stitch on the right side rows! It just couldn’t be much more easier than that. That’s why I choose to recommend this pattern for beginning knitters.
I knitted this pattern a week ago during my visit to Chincoteague Island in Virginia which I’m still residing at very present time. There is a local knitting circle that meet every Friday night. They meet at a local book store owned by a very nice and friendly lady who is originally from New York. The group was kind enough to let me and others who are not from the area to join in one Friday evening.
The group is working on building a charitable quilt and in need for more squares. I told the book store owner that I would bring a couple more squares at the next circle. So this two-color star stitch pattern was made for that very reason.
I like the look of the two colors combination pattern rather than just one color. It brings more interest to my eyes. I think this pattern would be a great pillow cover or a placemat. What do you think? You can experiment with one or two colors and see what your preference is.
Here is the pattern for Star Stitch Patterns in one color and two-color star stitch pattern
Multiple of 4 stitches + 1.
Row 1 (right side): Knit.
Row 2: P1, *Make Star, p1; repeat from * to end.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4; P3, Make Star, *p1, Make Star; rep from * to last 3 sts, p3.
Repeat these 4 rows to form star pattern.
To make two-color star stitch pattern you just work 2 rows of the star stitch pattern with a main color and change to a contrasting color on the next 2 rows. Repeat these 4 rows to form two-color start stitch pattern.
Make Star = p3tog leaving sts on needle, yrn, then purl the same 3 sts together again.
yrn = wrap yarn around needle once
