I am so excited to have a pattern featured in the Christmas Countdown Blog Hop hosted by itchinforsomestitchin and nedandmimi.  Great free crochet patterns can be downloaded everyday from 10/1-10/31.  My day is 10/14!

Warm, cozy winter wear is always a nice gift!  This makes a nice gift for your mom, sister, teacher, mail carrier, dog walker, etc.  The list could go on and on.  Churches and community groups are always looking for warm, winter wear for shelters and the homeless.  These 3 pieces could be given as 1 gift, or you can split it up, and give it as 3 separate gifts.  It is made primarily of waistcoat stitch that looks like knit stitch and is thick, dense, and warm.  The star stitch adds an interesting detail and is one of my favorites! It also coordinates nicely with a longer pair of fingerless mitts made in tunisian crochet that is available for free on a prior blog post, my Freebies page, and Ravelry.  Give it a try and share on social media, I would love to see your projects.

  1. You refer to Star stitch row as directions above. I do not see the directions for the star stitch listed anywhere on the page. Can you help with the directions on how to do this please and thank you in advance. Just want to make sure I do the stitch correctly.

    1. Star Stitch—Ch 2, pull up 1 loop in front and 1 loop in back of 2nd chain from hook, and 1 loop in each of the next 3 stitches—6 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops, ch 1—this forms the eye. 1st star stitch made.
      To make the next star stitch—insert the hook into the ch 1 just made, and pull up a loop. Then insert the hook under the 2 strands on the side of the last loop made in the previous stitch, and pull up a loop. Then insert the hook into the base of the last loop of the previous st, and pull up a loop. Pull up a loop in each of the next 2 stitches—6 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops. Chain 1 to make the eye and finish the stitch. Repeat across the row, finishing with a hdc in the same stitch as your last loop.
