Crochet Patterns from the Outside In!

Crafts March 12, 2017

crochet this outside in (

Does it ever feel like you’ve run out of projects and patterns to try, and you feel like you need a little bit of a challenge? Do you like unraveling the mysteries of crochet patterns? If so, you might consider attempting a little bit of sleuthing and re-working patterns that come in other languages.

This Polish Star crochet pattern from a Russian baby blog might be just the thing to pique your interest. And of course, the rest of us who wish we had an English version of this pattern would love it if you posted the results! The Polish Star may look complicated, but from the tutorial video I watched, it might not actually be that difficult.

The stitches look simple enough, it’s the joining and working around the color scheme that seem to make it look complicated or detailed at the end. It’s a gorgeous pattern, which I’m sure could be cobbled together from a few other patterns, like a star pattern and a hot pad.

What’s unique about this pattern is that it’s crocheted from the outside in – you begin the pattern by creating the edges and then slowly work your way up to the star in the middle. Which means the beginning of the pattern would be relatively simple.

If you’re curious about this Polish Star pattern and want to try your hand at either translating the video’s pattern from its original language into English, or if you’re intrigued by the video and want to write out your own pattern based on your experience creating a Polish Star, you can find the video tutorial at Baby Blog.
