23:04hiding my yarn
23:06going around the post of the stitches right here
23:10just like this
23:13and then doing a slip stitch
23:17and this will anchor the little ridges close together
23:21as you progress in this square
23:23you will be able to notice it a lot more
23:24i'm a little farther along on this piece
23:28and this is where we are slip stitching together
23:31on the piece i just showed you

25:30this is what i'm calling the flat edge
25:34in each corner from here
25:38will have the four triple crochet cluster
25:41and ten triple crochet for the increase
25:48and we end up with a square that continues to expand
25:52you can also do this the regular way
25:55without doing the post stitch if you prefer
25:58the post stitch to create this little lip effect
26:01is just another different technique

Author Jessica Thornbrough (8 months)
That's so cool, I have want to try this stitch. Your video help a lot.
Thank you a bunch. x3

Author Cathy Matjazic (2 days)
Great job, but at about 9:50, you aren't really clear on where to attach
the second color. You went through that so fast, I can't figure out where
to go. :(

Author Sandy Altendorf (1 month)
Heard you might be deleting your videos...please don't! I love them!!!!!

Author zeebs385 (5 months)
Are there different versions or variations of the Bavarian Crochet stitch?
I've also heard of Wheel stitch that looks very similar to this. Just
trying to decide on a type/pattern before I dive in and don't want to come
to find I don't like the outcome of the work.

Author paschall76 (6 months)
I don't understand how to keep going after round 4 either. Do we go back
around the posts again to make the ridges?

Author Janet Bequeaith (11 months)
I want to thank you for your thorough description of the Bavarian stitch.
Your version of the Bavarian stitch is my absolute favorite (I've tried 2
other versions). It is the most soft in appearance and feel of all of the
variations. Thank you for the time and effort you put into the videos. Your
technique and aptitude for teaching is excellent.

Интересное видео!!!

Author Brandi Hinkle (11 months)
The only thing I am not clear on is where you are starting the new color.
(at about 10:03 in the video) I cannot tell where or how you attached it. I
understand the overall technique, I watched the video through before
actually getting out my crochet supplies. My confusion is: did you attach
in a stitch or to a post, then did you chain 3? I'm stuck at this step.

Author Red Bird (7 months)
That is a very pretty crochet stitch. I like the lip part

I saw a baby afghan done using this stitch and just knew I had to make one!
I just happened to have the perfect yarn for it. So I went on a search to
find a Youtube to teach me how. After watching a few that I just wasn't
connecting with I finally found yours! Amazing! You are so easy to follow,
your voice is so calm and reassuring and I love how you used the slow
motion! That was soooo helpful! I'm only on round 7 but I'm having so much
fun with this pattern. Thank you so so very very much! I sincerely
appreciate the time and effort you put in to creating this for people like
me! You're awesome! I can't wait to watch more of your videos!

You are a good teacher, but that still looks confusing. I would love to do
a small blanket in that stitch but no thank you.

Author guitargurl37 (1 year)
how many skeins would I need if i was using this pattern to make a queen
size blanket?

Author Jan Gunning (1 year)
Hi Theresa.....wanted to thank you for all your time in efforts in your
videos. I have learned a lot and am paying it forward in teaching others. I
am paying it forward in teaching others. I am currently working on the
bavarian stitch afghan and wanted to notify you that for some strange
reason your video for it will not play. I had not had any problems before
until a few days ago. I also was wondering if you had the written pattern
for the bavarian stitch square. I am not a newbie so if you have the
written instructions I believe I can do fine. Please let me know and thank
you again and for a great job in writing clear instructions in your
patterns. You are appreciated! :-) My email addy is
Happy Crocheting!! :-D

Crochet Geek - Crochet Wheel Stitch Square - Catherine Wheel - Bavarian

Author Trina M (1 year)
Your tutorial says you are doing a "square version of catherines wheel".
Ive looked everywhere I can think of and cannot find a circular version of
catherines wheel. I like the raised and rippled effect of the catherines
wheel that youve shown, but I was hoping for something softer, more
circular, without sharp corners. Is there such a stitch? Can you show me?

To continue making it larger, you will work at least 3 single crochet in
each corner on each round so it will continue to expand. If you find that
the corner are starting to curl, that will mean that there is not enough
increases in the corner.

Theresa, could you possibly go beyond the first 4 rows of this pattern? I
am having a hard time going beyond what you show on the video. I can start
it very nicely, but beyond that I am struggling.

I like the way this looks! I must say though, I never aquired a j hook, so
sad. I really must make this.
