I left you here with a perfect circle, now it’s time to create the points of your start. So, let’s chain up three at this particular moment. And now, we’re going to single crochet into the very next stitch. So, just going into the next stitch on the circle, pulling it through and pull it through.
So, here we go, this is when we’re starting to make the actual points of the star. We’re going to double crochet and we’re going to skip the very next chain and go to the second one over. So, skip this one, go to the next. So, pulling it through, pull through two and two and we’re going to do this three times in a row into the same stitch. So, this is number two, this is the double crochet and let’s go in again.
Now, the pattern does differ from me at this particular moment. I am struggling with this blanket to grow p proportionally to each other. It says to chain two at this particular moment. I would suggest chaining three. It’s the only way I’ve got mine to work. And this is creating the very first point. So, grabbing your material again, we’re going to go into that same hole down here. And we’re going to put three double crochets into that same section.
Okay, so you can see we kind of really did create the point there. So, now what we want to do, the next stitch here, we want to leave it empty and we’re going to go to this second one over. And we’re going to just single crochet. So, let’s go again. So, we’re going to double crochet. So, we’re going to skip the next one, go into the second over and we’re going to put three double crochets in a row. And in a row, I mean by and the same stitch. Now, chain three instead of chaining two. So, chain three is the only way I’ve been able to get this thing to work. Going into the same hole which just causes it to create the point. We’re going to do three more double crochets.
So now we just did that, let’s skip the next stitch and go second one over for a single stitch. Now, let’s create another point. So, wrapping your material, we’re going to skip over the next stitch, going into the second over and put three double crochets right in a row. And so, let’s chain three and we’re going to double crochet into the same stitches that we just did the other three in, which causes it to create the point.
So now, we got our three in. We’ve chained our three and then three. So, let’s skip the next stitch, go into the next, first single crochet. So, let’s create another point. So, skip the next one, go into the second one over for double crochet for three into that same hole. And now, we’re going to chain three and going into the same hole. So, you got your point there. You got your threes. So, the next one is your single crochet, so we skip the next stitch, go into the second one over, first single crochet. So, you can see you got four points and you can see they’re almost done the circle. So, you should end up in the last stitch just before you actually did your chain which is correct. So, let’s do that going into that hole, so the second one over like before. So, we skip over one, put your three double crochets in a row and now, put three more into that same hole to create the other side of the point. And now, we’re going to slipstitch.
So, looking at it here, what you want to do is you want to slipstitch it down right here. See how you got the actual single stitch going on down there? That is where you want to go. So, let’s go down in, grabbing your material, pulling it through and through. So, there is your star and this is the starting point of it. And you’re going to want to really pay attention to the next step because the next step, this is not the where you’re going to actually change your color. If you’re going to do any color changes, you got to wait and I’ll show you why in a little bit.
