3.0 out of 5 stars Explains Two-Round Stitch Technique for Creating Diamond-Patterned Fabric Oct. 7 2010
By Lynne E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This slender booklet explains the "Bavarian crochet" stitch, which employs a two-round technique that combines treble shells, treble clusters, and back post treble decreases to create rows of diamond shapes. In the finished fabric, the shells and clusters are outlined by raised stitches that look like chain stitches. When each round is done in a different color, the effect of the outlining is particularly striking. The booklet cover photo clearly illustrates the look of "Bavarian crochet" fabric.

The booklet includes no explanation of why the two-round stitch technique is called "Bavarian crochet". There are excellent photos that show how to use the technique to make squares, triangles, and rectangles. All nine patterns (baby blanket, vest, afghan, shawl, bag, scarf, hat, basket, table runner) use the same two-round technique.

I purchased this booklet because I was curious about "Bavarian crochet". Although it is a fine booklet, I was disappointed to learn that "Bavarian crochet" is nothing more than a two-round technique for combining various treble crochet stitches into diamond-patterned fabric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended For Ambitious Beginners & Up Jan. 8 2012
By Dragonfly Moon Embroidery & Fiber Arts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I have crocheted my entire life and had never seen a pattern such as this. It is a rather intriguing texture. I have only stitched out a test square (about potholder sized) to see how easy it was to work up. The instructions are well written. The step-by-step photographs are impeccable. There are plenty of variations on the pattern within the included projects to show you how to work up non-traditional shapes such as triangles. It is rather amazing how a simple color change can alter the look of the pattern so drastically, so it is a versatile pattern. It looks very complicated but isn't. I plan to eventually do most of the patterns in the book, but right now I have my eye on the Table Runner & the Little Basket. I highly recommend this book for very ambitious beginners & and up.

I got this book for Christmas and have just finished a beautiful baby blanket using this stitch technique. I've purchased several Annie's Attic crochet books before and have found them to be well-written patterns and easy to follow instructions.
