Turkish Star Stitch - Crochet Tutorial by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

Recently, one of my Facebook followers asked me to help her understand the Turkish Star Stitch. She actually did not call it that way, but I did. The reason for that is, that she initially send me a Facebook video link that was from a lady in Turkey, her name is Diyana Yün.

But because she does not speak English, it was hard to understand how this stitch is made. Also  she calls it a star stitch, but as we have in the English/American Crochet language already a star stitch, I called the stitch from Diyana Yün the Turkish Star Stitch.

However, if anyone happens to know the actually English version of this name, please let me know and I will update my post.

This stitch is actually very easy and looks incredibly beautiful. All it uses is single crochet. To make it look different from a normal round of single crochet it is placed in a different location than how it is normally done.

So lets get started. Please keep in mind that I have a video tutorial on the bottom of this page which will help you understand more clearly if the pictures are not clear enough. As it is very hard to show on pictures where exactly to place the stitches even though it is easy one you know here they go.

First you will need a simple round (not row, it will not work for flat pieces unless you start from the right side on each row) of stitches. I started with a round of single crochet (multiples of 2 is needed).

 

Round 1 of the Turkish Star Stitch:

  • Ch1, *2 sc in the same st, sk 1 st, repeat from * until the end of the round, DO NOT SL ST, these are continues rounds! Either continue with the same color or change colors like me (on the last stitch of this round)

Round 2:

  • *place 2 sc between the 3rd and 4th line of the 2 sc of the previous round and then go thru the skipped stitch from the previous round, repeat from * all around, change color on the last stitch

Round 3:

  • *place 2 sc between the 3rd and 4th line of the 2 sc of the previous round and then go thru the stitch right underneath from the previous round, repeat from * all around, change color on the last stitch

Continue round 3 as many times as needed for what you are creating.

Here are some additional photos using this stitch but using different colors:

  1. Thank you for creating this tutorial! So helpful. I am still a novice and need detailed tutorials so thank you for the great explanation.

    I am however very interested in this stitch for a blanket. I understand it would be heavy but that’s precisely what I’d like.

    Will you be creating a tutorial on doing a flat peace….not one in the round? I can’t figure out how to do it as a flat. Help! Knowing the multiples would be very helpful too.

    Thank you!!

    1. Hi Cindy,

      thank you for your comment and question. I actually got this question often since I publish this tutorial yesterday. I will make another video on how I would do this stitch flat. But here is my written explanation for it: For a right handed person, always start on the right side working towards the left, no turning ever. Sadly that also produces lots of ends and loads of weaving in at the end. As mentioned I will make a video and post I to this post once finished. If you subscribe to my youtube channel you will know right away when it was published 🙂 I hope that helps for right now. Thank you again

      Nicole

    1. No, it is not, It does have a similar technique. If you watch the video, you will see the difference. You are not slitting every single crochet here, also you are placing the stitches (2sc) not just in between 1 single crochet, also also into a stitch below it. The waistcoat stitch does not do that actually. Thanks for your comment 🙂
