When you’re looking for a crochet stitch that has dimension, texture, and style, look no further than the beautiful Bavarian stitch. Traditionally worked in two or more colors, the Bavarian stitch is perfect for afghans, purses, shawls, baby blankets, table runners, and any other project that demands the “wow” factor.
Bavarian is a favorite among crocheters for many reasons. For one thing, it’s a yarn-eater, so it will use up your stash in a hurry. And that will give you a good reason to go buy new yarn!
Another reason why crocheters love this stitch: a project worked in Bavarian looks impressive, but it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. Because of how the stitch is worked, the colors seem to undulate. It makes a simple shoulder bag look like a work of art. A baby blanket becomes a treasured heirloom. A shawl becomes a showpiece. Imagine the compliments you’ll receive!
You can work the Bavarian stitch a few ways—in rows, in a square, or as a rectangle. I Like Crochet’s Stitch School: Bavarian Stitch How-To teaches you the rectangle version, worked in the round with a combination of trebles, shells, clusters, and posts. Like all our Stitch School tutorials, you get step-by-step instructions with plenty of photos to keep you on track and show you exactly how to get this stitch done. You’ll master this stitch in no time!
Roseanna Beck wrote this Stitch School tutorial exclusively for I Like Crochet. Roseanna has designed crochet and knitting projects for books and magazines for 20 years, so you know you’re in good hands.
Once you learn the Bavarian Stitch, you’ll eagerly search for all the I Like Crochet patterns that use it to make wraps, afghans, and other oblong projects. So, pull out your yarn stash and get started with the beautiful Bavarian Stitch now!
