Written Pattern , How to crochet the star blanket

 I hope you are as excited to create this star blanket as I was when I started it, I love how it turned and how quick it was, however it was very challenging to create the right and easy pattern for it.



I couldn't find any pattern similar to this online as all star blankets are started differently and turned into a star later on, however with this one from start to end is a star, you don't have to shape it differently

The rows where you do the decrease are usually odd numbers, means, when you have 7 spaces in each side it means you'll do a decrease, again means, cluster in 3 spaces sk the next space, clusters in the next 3 spaces, that's to keep the star flat and having the right shape. The decrease rows in the pattern are highlighted in blue.

The pattern has a total of 38 rows and it measures 96 cm by 72 cm

the yarn in the picture was from lion brand

1 ball of yarn used

Ch4, join to form a circle


Row 1 : Ch3, 2dc in the circle, ch2, 3dc in the circle, ch2, repeat 3dc, ch2 for a total of 5 times, join ( you should get 6 clusters).


Row 2 : Ch3, 2dc,  , next space ( cluster, ch2, cluster ) repeat () 4 times , cluster, ch2 , join.

Row 3 : ch3,2dc, *cluster in the next space, (cluster, ch2, cluster in the next space ( corner)), repeat from*to &, cluster, ch2 , join

Row 4 : ch3,2dc in the same space, *cluster in the next 2 spaces, (cluster,ch2,cluster) in the next corner &, repeat from * to &, in the last space where you started the cluster, make a cluster ch2, join.

Row 5: ch3, 2dc in the same space, cluster in the next space, sk next space, cluster in the next space, (cluster, ch2, cluster in the corner) repeat from* to &, cluster ch2, join in the last corner.

Row 6: ch3, 2dc in the same space, cluster in the next spaces, (cluster,ch2,cluster) in the corner, repeat till end, cluster, ch2 join in the last corner 

 Row 7 : repeat row 6.

Row 8 : ch3, 2dc in the same space, cluster in the next 2 spaces, sk next space, cluster in the next 2  spaces, (cluster, ch2, cluster in the corner) repeat from* to &, cluster ch2, join in the last corner.

Row 9 and 10 : repeat row 6

Row 11ch3, 2dc in the same space, cluster in the next 3 spaces, sk next space, cluster in the next 3  spaces, (cluster, ch2, cluster in the corner) repeat from* to &, cluster ch2, join in the last corner.

continue alternating between rows till you get the length required of your blanket, remember when you have an odd number in a row regardless  of the corners, that's when you need to do a decrease like I have explained above and then you continue the next rows as normal no decrease, until the next row where you get the odd number.
