Teresa has great vids on youtube for the star stitch hat and the stitch itself, here are the links
Hat -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zugvv0nzj1Y&feature=user
for the hat she uses this star stitch example -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IomECyrFBM
Another star stitch is this one -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inUleg__vaU (this is a good one to practice the star stitch)
I used it to practice so i could tackle the hat, here is a pic
The hat is looking good so far
Not finished yet, i have done all the increases, now its just the normal star stitch pattern until the length i want the hat to be, the pic is ok, its dark purple and light purple. I love the way the hat is comming out. Cannot wait till it is finished. Will post a pic when done.
Have a great day :) Monikarose
