Interrupted Star Stitch Scarf {Free Crochet Pattern}

This scarf used the fun-to-crochet star stitch. The star stitches are interrupted with a couple of  rows of "open" double crochet stitches. I think that breaking the rows up in this way allows the star stitch to stand out a bit more.
The stitches are not difficult, and after you work a few rows, it goes much quicker.

You can continue the scarf to your desired length. You can add a fringe, if you like.
This scarf can easily be modified into an infinity scarf by sewing the ends together.

The interrupted star stitch scarf makes a nice addition to any scarf collection. It makes a wonderful gift, as well.

Interrupted Star Stitch Scarf

Supplies:
Size J Crochet Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Light Sage)


Pattern:
Ch 20
Row 1: Insert hook into the second chain from the hook and pull a loop of yarn through. Pull up loops in the next 3 chains. This will give you 5 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on the hook. Ch 1 to create the "eye" of the star. Now, insert your hook into the eye of the star you just made and pull up a loop. Then insert the hook into the same stitch where you last pulled up a loop for the previous star and pull up another loop. You should now have three loops on the hook. Insert your hook and pull up loops in the next 2 stitches. Now you have 5 loops on the hook as before. Yarn over and pull through all loops, then ch 1 to create the eye.
Repeat this pattern across to the last stitch. Work 1 hdc in the last stitch. Turn. (This gives you half a star. You will work the other half with the next row.)
Row 2: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc stitches in each "eye" across the row. Work one hdc into the top of the ch-3 from the previous row. Turn. (This completes the star)
Row 3: Ch 4. Dc in second hdc. (Ch 1, skip 1 hdc, dc in next hdc) across the row. Ch 1, then dc in the top of the ch-3 from the previous row. Turn.
Row 4: Ch 4. (Dc in next dc, ch 1) across the row. Dc in the third ch of the ch-4 from the previous row.
Row 5:  Ch 3. Pull up a loop through the second and third stitches on the starting ch-3, then skip the stitch at the base of the ch-3 and pull up loops in in the next ch-1 space and in the next dc. Ch 1 to create the "eye" of the star. Now, insert your hook into the eye of the star you just made and pull up a loop. Then insert the hook into the same stitch where you last pulled up a loop for the previous star and pull up another loop. You should now have three loops on the hook. Insert your hook and pull up loops in the next ch-1 space and in the next dc. Now you have 5 loops on the hook as before. Yarn over and pull through all loops, then ch 1 to create the eye.
Repeat this pattern across to the last stitch. Work 1 hdc in the third ch of the ch-4 from the previous row. Turn.
Row 6: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc stitches in each "eye" across the row. Work one hdc into the top of the ch-3 from the previous row. Turn. (This completes another star row.)
Rows 7-98 (or desired length): Repeat rows 3, 4, 5, & 6 in order.
Finish off and weave in ends.



Happy Crocheting!
