The video teaches how to make a beautiful crochet blanket using a special stitch called the Bavarian crochet stitch. The person making the tutorial suggests using a slightly larger crochet hook than the yarn recommends to make the blanket more comfortable and drape nicely.
To start, they use a magic circle and do a series of treble crochet stitches, which they call “clusters,” into the circle. Each cluster has four half-finished treble stitches that are then joined together. They repeat this process four times, forming sets of clusters separated by chain stitches.
In the next round, they work on forming corners and sides by doing specific clusters of treble crochets around the previous round’s stitches. The corners have clusters of four trebles, while the sides have clusters of eight trebles. These clusters are made using a back post stitch, which creates a beautiful textured pattern.
The video teaches how to change colors every two rounds to add variety to the blanket. Each subsequent round builds upon the previous one by rounding off the corners and sides with sets of treble crochet clusters, following the pattern of 4 trebles for corners and 8 trebles for sides, separated by chain stitches.
The tutorial emphasizes the repetition of this pattern to create a stunning and textured blanket. It’s recommended for those who are comfortable with crocheting and understand basic stitches like single crochet and treble crochet.
In summary, it’s a step-by-step guide to create a beautiful blanket using the Bavarian crochet stitch, which involves specific clusters of treble crochets to form corners and sides, creating a textured and visually appealing design.
