The best part of being on Part 3 of the blanket means once you have this section of the blanket complete you will only have the border left to go!  Yay!

I hope you will enjoy working on your winter themed blanket pattern and learn some new crochet stitches along the way.

Crochet Stitch Sampler Blanket Part 3 Details

The highlight of part three of my Winter’s Night Rhapsody sampler crochet blanket is the brand new Star Stitch!

The Star Stitch uses the same base as my Snowflake Stitches from Part 1 and the star stitches will be worked into the ch-1 stitch in the same manner.

If you are working a Snowflake blanket you could skip the stars and just add snowflakes to those ch-1 spaces instead!

The remainder of part 3 will be repeating the stitches from part 1.  The video tutorial for the Star stitch is now available you can find it below or on YouTube.  I have all the video tutorials you need for the stitches in part 3.   Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified whenever I post a new video.
