Keep reading to find out more about the Catherine Wheel Blanket and see a sample of the pattern and view the video...
Here are a few pictures of the sample I worked up so that I could show you how this pattern looks when it is made.
As you can see, it is mostly double crochet. If you need to brush up on your basic crochet stitches before beginning this project, check out my crochet videos HERE.
In case you are wondering why this pattern is called Catherine Wheel, it is for the same reason that those fireworks that spin around when you light them are called the same name, because St. Catherine of Alexandria was condemned to death by torture on a wheel in the year 307. Thankfully the Catherine Wheel made with this pattern is not an instrument of torture!
So here is the video, for which I must apologize in advance. It is nearly 39 minutes long, and not quite the quality I had hoped for. Because of its size, I had to save it in a lower resolution in order for blogger to upload it. I do hope you will view it anyway and allow me to get you started on this colorful and interesting crochet pattern!
