This traditional Star Stitch is a beautiful brioche knitting pattern that adds lots of texture and visual interest. A 6-Row Repeat Stitch, this pattern looks great in one color, as well as multiple rows of yarn colors. The Star Stitch creates gorgeous knitted scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters and even knit neckties! Along with up-close photos of my knitting samples, you’ll find links to all the techniques, a printable written pattern, and video tutorial. I hope you are inspired to give this beautiful Star Knit Stitch a try!
