Starburst Stitch

The Starburst stitch is a great stitch to practice your increasing and decreasing in crochet. The pattern is essentially alternating rows of increasing and decreasing to create the rounded “starburst” pattern you see.

While this can be made with just about any yarn, alternating colors every two rows or using self-striping yarn really make this stitch stand out.

The pattern creates a super dense fabric that would look great as a blanket, or thick cowl. The pattern is completely reversible and looks great unblocked or blocked.

Suggested Materials

Any weight yarn would work for this pattern, but make sure the yarn does not have too much texture (i.e. no boucle) or you will lose the Starburst definition. See some good examples to use that I love below.

The “Zen” Tutorial

I’ve done something different this time with the included video tutorial. It is completely voiceless and just plays very relaxing music as it walks you through the stitches. Each stitch is worked very slowly and multiple times so you can see what needs to be done. I’m hoping this format is enjoyable and easy to follow. I plan to make more videos like this so please let me know how you like them.
