Jumbo Wheel Stitch

The Catherine Wheel Stitch is one of my ultimate favourite crochet stitches. I love how the stitches are tighter together and the circles it leaves behind leaves me with a sense of pride at the end of the project.

This article will have the written and video format for this stitch. The written instructions consist of 5 lines before the repeat pattern kicks in. It’s due to the circles locations. I explain this thoroughly in the video tutorial.

To Make Different Sizes

Multiple of 10 sts + 2.

Remember the + number at the end of the sentence means that you are to add chains at the very end to maintain the pattern as written.

Written Instructions

You will need at least 2 colours of yarn to work with. Even more if you prefer to have even more colours. This particular afghan looks really effective using 3 or more colours.

See video instructions for learning how to do the TOG DEC stitches.

Chain Length – Sets of 10 + 2 (see paragraph above)
