Today I was teaching Bavarian Crochet & it was fun.

The lady I was teaching was 85 and very sprightly with her Crochet, so it was an absolutely pleasurable 2 hours

She brought along this Crochet Stitches book which she's had for 50 years!

I would love to find a copy

So back to Bavarian Crochet - Here's one I made earlier...

And here's W working away at her creation

And look at her brilliant result!

I have translated a pattern to UK from a few US versions that I have found over the years either online or in books.  I like to "improve" a pattern if I think it's needed, however small the change may be.  In this case I have added a sl st here & deleted a dc there - it could have been "errata"

This is how you start it

And then you do this...

And this...

And this...!

Until you do this....

....which gives you that "Bavarian Crochet Look"

I have found making Bavarian Crochet so therapeutic today that I did some more!

and finally - Square 298!
