This is a beginner friendly tutorial showing you how to work the Turkish star crochet stitch. This is a super versatile stitch you can use for various projects!
Recently, one of my Facebook followers asked me to help her understand the Turkish Star Crochet 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. However, we already have a star stitch in the English/American Crochet language. That is why 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.

Turkish Star Crochet Stitch Tutorial
So let’s get started. Please keep in mind that I have a video tutorial on the bottom of this page.
It will help you understand more clearly if the pictures are not enough.
It is very hard to show on pictures where exactly to place the stitches. Even though it is easy once 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 Crochet 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 continuous rounds!
- Either continue with the same color or change colors like me (on the last stitch of this round)
Turkish Star Stitch Round 2:
- *place 2 sc between the 3rd and 4th line of the 2 sc of the previous round. Then go thru the skipped stitch from the previous round, repeat from * all around, change color on the last stitch
- *place 2 sc between the 3rd and 4th line of the 2 sc of the previous round. 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:
The right picture above shows how it looks from the inside/wrong side. I think it looks very pretty on the wrong side too!
Below is where the color changes happen. This is a view from the wrong side.
A close up of the stitch is seen below. Such an easy switch to hook placement and you can have a stitch that is so pretty.
I think this great crochet stitch would be perfect for a number of different crochet projects!
As it works best when you work in round, you can use it for projects like baskets, cowls, hats or a bag worked in round.
The colors will pop in small bursts if you use two contrasting ones.
However, you can also use a similar shades of the same color and create a subtle ombre effect.
