How to Crochet the Sunburst Stitch

I’m excited to share with you a fun new & free crochet stitch pattern called the Sunburst stitch!

I love the feeling of Spring when the cold starts to melt away and the sun comes shining through. While the weather is usually fickle where I live (you’ll think its getting warmer, and then there will be a sudden frost) this is always how I imagined Spring should be. 😆Haha.

Anyway, the Sunburst Stitch is a pretty lace stitch pattern perfect for Spring! It is part of my larger stitch library, which includes over 40 stitch patterns altogether!
