Note: Pattern instructions for the Star Stitch contain an error. For corrected instructions, visit the Ravelry project page or see my blog (link below).

I've also posted a Star Stitch tutorial here: http://mrsmicawber.blogspot.com/2013/11/stretchy-star-stitch-as-featured-in_8.html

Sorry - should have posted the corrected instructions here to begin with:

Corrected Instructions for Star Stitch: Ch 2, ins hook in back lp of 2nd ch from hook, yo and pull up a lp, ins hook in bottom ridge lp of same ch, yo and pull up a lp (3 lps on hook), ins hook in next star, yo and immediately draw through all lps on hook. (Do NOT draw up another loop after inserting hook into next stitch.)

Does any one have a visual on how to do the band on this hat, especiallay the loops of the bands.
