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

Crochet hook size used : 4 MM




Abbreviations:

ch: chain

dc: double crochet

sk: skip

cluster: 3dc

NORMAL ROW

WRITTEN PATTERN

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.

I'll be joining the downloadable detailed pattern soon, stay tuned !
