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 🙂
