I am learning some more new stitches. One of them, the star stitch, I’ve never even heard of! For those of you who are new here, I am adapting an afghan pattern called Rings of Change into a tablecloth using all the crochet thread in my stash I can. These threads are all sizes and colors, and I’m doing my best to arrange the colors as pleasing as possible.
This pattern is a paid pattern found on Ravelry and created by Frank O’Randle. He has the first 42 rounds of this 112 round pattern made into Mini Rings of Change, and it’s free.
Here is what the star stitch looks like on my piece:
In the above picture, you see Fan Stitch on the very top, next one down are ch2 and ch1 spaces and single crochets. The third line which you can barely see is made up of all double crochets. The next row down are the Star Stitches. Personally, I don’t think they look like stars…
Since Mr. O’Randle’s written instructions on how to make the star stitch left much to be desired, I went elsewhere to find out how to create this stitch, and I found it on my go to site: The Spruce Crafts
The above is the picture of her swatch of star stitches. I still don’t see any stars….
After the Fan Stitch which, I have made before, comes the Double Treble Stitch. I have never had cause to use this stitch, and it’s going to be a thread eater. Still, I have a full ball of green thread I can use for this row.
I’m up to row 62 now with another 50 to go, I think. Something like that. I may add some extra rows to give it more length. I’m going to start taking picture of it draped over the table I’m making it for so you can gauge my progress better that way. 🙂
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

It looks like a row of asters, so close enough to stars, I think. 🙂 (Plus, ‘star stitch’ sounds so much cooler, lol…) Looks like this project is a beautiful sampler project, since I see it says 33 different stitches are involved–love your progress on it so far, and I hope you continue enjoying to stitch all the new stitches.
I’m liking the variety of it 🙂 I get tired of doing the same stitches over and over again so this is a lovely change from the norm.
I did Tides of Change years ago, and I used yarn in sizes 4, 5 and 6 so it turned into a floor rug. It was awesome, and I gave it to a neighbor who still uses it. 🙂
