There is a difference in the work from the front to the back. Above is an example of my work where you will see the difference in the sides. Click on the image for a full view of the example.

Multiple: 2 + 3

Star Bottom: Chain 3, pull up a loop 5 times through each of the next 5 chains. There will be a total of 6 loops on the hook. Pull through all 6 loops on the hook with a slip stotch. The next star,
  1. The loop on the hook will count as the first stitch.
  2. Draw a loop through the closing,
  3. The next loop will be through the side of the stitch
  4. Draw the next loop throught the same ch as the previous star
  5. Draw a loop through each of the next 2 Chs.
  6. Pull through all 6 loops on your hook.

Star Top: CH 2, 2 HDC in EA closing across, HDC in BEG CH 3

NOTE: The instructions below and the image numbers match, showing where the hook is being inserted and where the loops are being made to create the stitch.

Star Bottom for Half Double Crochet Row:
  1. By Default, the loop on the hook will count as the first loop
  2. Insert hook through the first loop of the joining hole of the previous stitch, pull the yarn through ( 2 loops on hook)
  3. Insert hook through the next loop through the side of the previous stitch,pull the yarn through (3 loops on hook)
  4. Insert hook through the HDC of the previous row. It will be shared with the previous stitch, pull the yarn through. ( 4 loops on hook)

  6. Insert the hook through the next HDC, pull the yarn through (6 loops on hook)
