How to crochet a star granny square … star 1 with one color

Hello my lovelies 🙂

How are you today? I hope you are all fine. Today I will show you how to crochet a basic granny square named star.

This square is really lovely. It starts with a circle …. like a bright star …. in the middle and ends up in a square.

You can do it with only one colour or you can change the colour in every round … but this I will show you next time. Today I show you the version … star 1 with only one colour.

So let us hook together 🙂  I used Schachenmayr Bravo Yarn with a 3.5 mm hook.

Beginning cluster : chain 2, (yarn over, insert hook in next stitch or space, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice in same stitch or space, yarn over, draw through 3 loops on your hook.

Cluster: (Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch or space, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw trough 2 loops an hook) 3 times in same stitch or space, yarn over, draw through 4 loops on your hook.

So now we are ready for our Star 1:

Chain 5 with your yarn and join with a Slip Stitch in your first chain to form a ring.

Round 1: Work 1 beginning cluster in your ring, chain 3,
* work 1 cluster in your ring, chain 3 * repeat 4 times,
join with a Slip Stitch to your beginning cluster (you have 6 cluster in your first round)

* work 1 cluster, chain 3 and 1 Cluster in your next loop, chain 3 * repeat 4 times,
join with a Slip Stitch to your beginning cluster (you have now 12 cluster in your second round)

Round 3: chain 3 (this counts for a double crochet), chain 1, work 3 triple crochet, chain 3 and work 3 triple crochet in your first loop (this will be your first corner)
chain 1 and work 3 double crochet in your next loop,
chain 1 and work 3 double crochet in your next loop, chain 1
* work 3 triple crochet and then chain 3 and work again 3 triple crochet in your next loop,
chain 1 and work 3 double crochet in your next loop,
chain 1 and work 3 double crochet in your next loop, chain 1 * repeat 2 times
in your last loop you only have to work 2 double crochet without a chain.
join with a Slip Stitch into your 3rd chain and fasten off.
