Crochet Gentle Waves Blanket
This beautiful free crochet pattern by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is called the Gentle Waves Crochet Blanket. It is designed as a lap blanket for those cooling off evenings while sitting comfy at home.
This is very similar to the Catherine Wheel Stitch and is one of my all-time favourite stitches of crochet. My first afghan after learning double crochet and doing a full double crochet afghan was the Catherine Wheel Stitch. It's a tight stitch and looks incredible. I've done several blankets in this particular stitch.
I have other variations of this stitch which include a Catherine Wheel Wave, Catherine Wheel Squares, Bavarian Crochet Squares and more. In fact, one of the very first tutorials, when I started back in 2008, was demonstrating this stitch. It was my favourite then and still continues to be. Here's a playlist of other ideas featuring this stitch.
