Crochet Gif Tutorials: Star Stitch

This is a tutorial in 4 parts:

Part 1: Row 1, First Star
Part 2: Subsequent Stars
Part 3: Row 2
Part 4: Row 3

The star stitch requires prior knowledge of the half double crochet (hdc) stitch

How many chains should I make to begin?
Crochet - one example of a ‘real-world’ application of algebra! (Sorry!)
Chain: 2 x (the number of stars you wish to make), + 4 extra chains. 
e.g. for a row of 5 stars, 2(5)+4 = 14 chains. 

Note: you don’t have to begin with a chain! To start a row of star stitches mid-way through a project, skip straight to part 4. 

There are several variations on the star stitch. If you look at another tutorial and compare it to this one, you’ll probably find differences. This is the way I like to do it - but feel free to play around!
