I have recently updated my Crochet Starfish Square pattern and uploaded a video to help you with the making, from start to end. The renewed pattern is now available for 20% off on my Etsy shop, for the entire weekend. This granny square was part of a Starfish bedspread I made for our youngest, some years ago, when he was ready to move to his toddlers bed. The boy is downstairs playing football with his friends, while I’m writing this blog.
Before I take you into the new Starfish square pattern and video details, I just wanted to THANK YOU guys for your views and nice comments on the Solid Sq. vid. It was really so so pleasing to see so many watched it and to read each and every word you sent. This YouTube world is so new to me and it feels homey to have you there with me. Thank you so much for giving me your hands on my first baby steps on this platform. And WELCOME to all my new blog subscribers. Thank you for joining me here. And now let’s get right into the today’s crochet updates.
Crochet Starfish Square Pattern
This is an updated version of the StarFish square. I designed it back in 2015 when I wanted to make a Starfish bedspread for our youngest boy. The original blanket was made with my sport weight 4 ply Granny Kit Cotton yarn. With 12 different colors (Blues, Greens and browns) framed with a White background. Since then many of my local students and worldwide customers crocheted it using so many different beautiful yarns and color combinations. The renewed pattern is for the Square only including the last two framing rounds.
There are many beautiful star granny squares patterns out there but this is my version for a star granny square and it comes with a video tutorial.
Enjoy a 20% off on my renewed pattern, for the upcoming weekend. Sale ends Monday October 18th, 4pm, Jerusalem time. Shop pattern here.
As with all my patterns, it is a step by step pattern written in US crochet terms. You should be familiar with crochet stitches. This time I created a full video tutorial to help you along with the making.
The StarFish square is about 4.2″ x 4.2″ (10.7cm x 10.7 cm) – measured at the end of rnd 6.
This 6 rounds square is made out of 4 different colors. For the video I used my Granny Kit cotton yarn in col: Coral, Copper, Lime Green & ShaleGrey. In the pattern you’ll find the length of yarn that you will need for each round, so you can get prepared before you start your Starfish project.
Suggested hook size
I used a 3 mm crochet hook. Use any hook size to obtain gauge. I strongly recommend that you start with making a square sample to check your gauge.
20 sts & 12 rows = 4 x 4″ (10 x 10 cm) measured on a Double Crochet after blocking.
Crochet Starfish Square Pattern and Video
In this video I show how to crochet the Starfish square, start to end including all the special stitches involved in this pattern. I use US crochet terms. We will start by making the star and we will finish by making two framing rounds as in my original blanket. In the end of this video I show how to weave in the yarn ends so make sure you don’t miss it.
I strongly recommend that you stop and rewatch the parts of the video where you think you need it. This is exactly what I did when I wanted to learn new stitches at the beginning of my CrochetObjet journey. Let me know in the comments if you found it helpful and if you think you gonna try making your Starfish square. If you like this video please don’t forget to give it the thumbs up and if you haven’t already please subscribe to my channel. Thank you for supporting my making journey.
Feel free to play and make your own unique StarFish creation. In the following picture you see a Starfish square blanket on the making. One of my beloved students made it a few weeks ago as a birth gift. Her newborn granddaughter as well as the parents are in love ♥
It was actually one of the first patterns I have ever written. First in Hebrew, for my local students, following with the English pattern for my worldwide Etsy customers.
And here is my original blue Starfish blanket, made back in 2015. It is still well loved here in our family, and my boy is now eleven years old. He just got back home ready for dinner. ALWAYS hungry!
So, with the renewed Crochet Starfish Square Pattern and Video you can easily start your own crochet star project. I really hope you’ll give it a try but first checkout the video to get familiar with all the stitches. Let me know in the comments what you think of the video and if you have any feedback for me. I feel better and better each time I record but still love to hear your thoughts. Can’t wait to show you how to work the joining. I can see a new baby blanket coming soon… xox, Mo
