Is Star Stitch Crochet a Yarn Eater?

The Star Stitch is a yarn eater but it works up fast. It is a great scarf pattern to use for craft fairs since it has such a elegant look. It looks way more complicated than it is but it is an easy to intermediate skill level.

You can easily turn this skinny scarf into a star stitch infinity scarf by seaming the row ends together!

What is the Difference Between the Star Stitch and Daisy Stitch?

The Star Stitch Pattern is the same a the Daisy Stitch, although I have seen some slight variations between the two. 

What Can I Make with a Star Stitch in Crochet?

Other than a crochet star stitch scarf like my Stella Scarf, there are many other patterns you can make with star stitches. I have a few free crochet patterns using this lovely pattern on my blog and I have listed them below.

This versatile stitch is a great pattern for some many different items, looks wonderful in solid colors as well as tonals, and multicolor yarns.

Other Patterns Using the Star Stitch

How to Modify this Stylish Scarf Crochet Pattern 

If you would like this free crochet star stitch scarf pattern to be longer you will have to add more foundation crochet stitches.

The beauty of the star stitch is that it is worked in multiples of 2+1 so that means you can add just a few stitch to achieve the desired length you would like.

If you would like this to be a large size you can do more repeat steps listed in the star stitch crochet tutorial below.

  1. Quick question …. there are two Row 2 lines. Assuming the first one listed is row 2 and the second is row 3 then repeat rows 3 and 4 until you reach desired width?
