Materials:

Worsted Weight yarn
Size H hook (5.00mm)
Yarn needle (to weave in ends)

Finish Size: 8”h x 8”w inches

Note: The first CFPST made will be the top point of the star.

Different Stitches:

Incomplete Front Post Double Treble (IFPDT)-Yarn over 3 times, from the front insert hook from front to back around post of specified st and then to the front going thru other side of st, yarn over, draw up a loop, [yarn over, draw through 2 loops] Do this 3 times.


Incomplete Front Post Treble (IFPT)- Yarn over 2 times, from the front insert hook from front to back around post of specified st and then to the front going thru other side of st, yarn over, draw up a loop, [yarn over, draw through 2 loops] Do this 2 times.

Combined Front Post Stitch (CFPST)-This happens when you are instructed in pattern to yarn over and draw thru all 3 loops on hook. When the stitches are combined they count as 1 stitch. (This works for both IFPDT and IFPT)

Note: On Rnd 7 I will instruct you to work in same st as last IFPT. I do this to get you to work in that particular stitch. The stitches are still combined I just couldn’t think of another way to explain working in that st.

Extended Double Crochet (EDC)- Yarn over, insert hook in specified st, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, draw thru loop, [yarn over, draw thru 2 loops on hook] Do this 2 times.
