In my last pattern Ciel étoilé, I used the star stitch. It’s a very nice stitch.

It requires a number of stitches multiple of 4 + 1.

You need a number of st multiplied per 4, and then added 1.
Row1 (RS): P1, *star, P1*, repeat ** to end.
Row2 (WS): K to end.
Row3: P3, *star, P1*, repeat ** to last 3, P3.
Row4: K to end.

For Star, see the photo tutorial.

1.Purl 3 stitches together, leaving stitches on left needle.

2.make a Yarn Over.

3.purl the same 3 stitches together again, and then drop off left needle.
