I haven't had much time to crochet or knit today. Main part of my day have been all about working behind the scenes so to speak.And I've been reading a lot, about everything website and blog related and taking notes of stuff I didn't want to forget.
But enough is enough right ? I really needed a break and something fun to do, so I decided to learn a new crochet technique. One that I've been wanting to learn for a long time.
Do you know Bavarian Crochet ?
I didn't until I stumbled upon a picture someone posted on Facebook and it was SO gorgeous. I really really wanted to learn that.So I decided to buy an online class and a book at Annie's Crafts with Jenny King.
I had so much fun with this and it wasn't as difficult to learn as I thought. I'm currently working on a headband from the class material.
This is the finished row 1 of the bavarian crochet stitch worked in the round.
Looks like valleys right ?
And here I'm working on row 2. Filling the valleys.
I didn't use the yarn stated in the pattern, but some I had lying in my stash just to try it out. I did find that I had to make my foundation chain a bit looser than usual or I would have trouble counting chains after doing the "valley" part. I even had to frog a few times haha.
But I can tell you this, it felt like magic, when I finally got the counting right.
Yarn used : hayfield Bonus DK in white and Iced Pink.
Hook : 4 mm (US G)
So far I'm pleased with how it's turning out, and my daughter has already taken ownership over the headband when it's finished
So have you ever tried Bavarian Crochet ?Or have you learned a new stitch recently ?
Please share, I would love to hear about it
