Bavarian Crochet Placemats/Tablerunner


Bavarian Crochet is a technique composed of two round repeats- the clusters round and the shell round. The resulting texture and fabric looks like diamonds outlined and it’s a great technique for color work. While it is most commonly worked in rounds, it can be adjusted for rows. The patterns below are adjustable to the size rectangles you would like AND can be used for other patterns like scarves, cowl, blankets, and more. There are also details about setting up for a square instead of a rectangle at the end for your reference for other patterns (blankets, motifs, pillows, flat doily, etc). Also at the end, there is a list of ideas for utilizing this technique.
