Star St Bottom

Ch 4, Insert your hook into the second chain from the hook. Yarn over and pull a loop through.

This is the beginning of a single crochet stitch, but instead of completing the entire stitch, leave the loop on the hook. Insert your hook into the next chain, yarn over and pull through. There are now three loops on the hook. Continue to insert your hook into subsequent chains, yarning over and pulling through until there are six loops on your hook. With six loops on your hook, yarn over one more time and pull through all six loops. Chain one. This finishes the star.

 

Next, insert your hook into the "eye" (the ch 1) that you just made. Yarn over and pull through. There will now be two loops on your hook. Insert your hook into the space between the two last "spikes" from the first "star." Yarn over and pull through. There will be three loops on your hook. Insert your hook into the same chain where you worked the last stitch of the previous star. Yarn over and pull through. There will now be four loops on your hook. Insert your hook into the next chain, yarn over and pull through. Repeat in the next chain. This will give you six loops on your hook. Finish this second star as you did the first one. Yarn over and pull through all six loops on the hook. Chain one to close the second star.

 

Repeat the steps above to make stars all the way across the row.
