Crochet Starburst Square

Crochet Starburst Square

The crochet starburst square pattern is just a little something I've been working on and I think it has a a lot of potential. Add an extra row to make it larger or hundreds of little ones in different colors and sew them all together! At least, that's my plan. 

Let's get started. 

To start your Star, you need to make a 6-SC (SC=single crochet) magic ring OR, ch 2 (ch=chain) and add 6 SC to the 2nd chain from the hook. Sl st (Sl St=Slip Stitch) to the first SC to close the ring and chain 6 (this counts as your first TC = triple crochet).

Next, work a TC in the same stitch

Working a Triple Crochet (TC): Yarn Over (YO) twice and insert your hook in the stitch, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through 2 loops.

Next, Chain 2

Repeat the following all the way around: [TC, ch 2, TC in same stitch, Ch 2] 

When you make it all the way around, Sl St in original Ch-6 and Fasten Off (FO).

For the third row, pick the color of your choice and Sl St in a ch-2 space.
In what will become a corner space add the following: Ch 3, DC, 2TC, 2DC
Add 3 DC in the next 2 spaces
This completes your first side of the square

In the next corner add the following: [2DC, 2TC, 2DC]
Then add 2DC in the next 2 spaces

Repeat 2 more times to complete the square, Sl St to first Ch 3 to close the row.

When you're ready, use any of my connection stitches to connect your squares together!
