Crochet pattern

Catherine Wheel Section 1 (Rows 67-72)

The Catherine wheel is a fun stitch to learn. As the name suggests the pattern creates big wheels that you crochet over the course of two rows. The stitch might look complex at first glance, but as long as you tackle it step by step, you can do it!

Row 67 (WS) Join Colour T with a ss in first st, 1sc in same st, *skip 2 sts, (3dc, ch1, 3dc) in same st, skip 2 sts, 1sc in next st; repeat from * another 37 times, skip 2 sts, (3dc, ch1, 3dc) in same st, skip 2 sts, 1sc in last stitch, cut yarn, turn. [41 sc, 40 3dc-ch1-3dc clusters, 80 spaces where you skipped 2 sts]

Row 68 (RS) Join Colour L with a ss in first st, ch3 (counts as first dc), dc3tog, ch7, skip ch-1 space, *dc7tog, ch7, skip ch-1 space; repeat from * another 38 times, dc3tog, 1dc in final st, turn. [39 half Catherine wheels, 2 quarter wheels (one on each end), 2 dc, 40 ch-7]

Row 69 (WS) Ch3 (counts as first dc), 3dc in dc3tog (there’s an ‘eye’ in the centre of the wheel, that’s where you’ll be working your stitches), 1sc over the ch7 of your previous row into the ch-1 space of Row 67, *(3dc, ch1, 3dc) in next dc7tog, 1sc over the ch7 of your previous row into the next ch-1 space of Row 67; repeat from * another 38 times, 3dc in final dc3tog, 1dc in last dc (the ch3 with which you started Row 68), cut yarn, turn. [39 half Catherine wheels, 2 quarter Catherine wheels (one on each end), 2 dc, 40 sc]

Since we’re only going to work one row of Catherine wheels the next row will look like Row 68, but will not be exactly the same. If you would crochet 7 chains as the ‘top’ row of the Catherine wheel, you can imagine that all your next rows would have quite the gap. Instead, we’ll be securing the chain to the Catherine wheels. This way, you can continue with the rest of your blanket without big gaps. Basically, we’re mirroring Row 67.

Row 70 (RS) Join Colour T with a ss in first st, 1sc in same st, *ch3, dc7tog, ch3, 1sc in ch-1 space of Row 69; repeat from * another 38 times, ch3, dc7tog, ch3, 1sc in last dc (the ch3 with which you started Row 69). Cut yarn, turn. [41 sc, 40 dc7tog, 80 ch-3]

We’ll need to make sure we’re going back to 241 hdc in the next row. This means counting! Luckily, we can look to Row 67 for that. Each Catherine wheel took up 6 stitches (1sc, 2 skipped stitches, a Catherine wheel and then 2 skipped stitches again) for every repeat. So we’ll just need to make sure we’re working 6 stitches per Catherine wheel to get back to 240 plus the final stitch that we’ve used to fasten the last wheel.

Row 71 (WS) Join Colour A with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, *2hdc in ch-3 space, 1hdc in dc7tog, 2hdc in next ch-3 space, 1hdc in sc; repeat from * another 38 times, 2hdc in ch-3 space, 1hdc in dc7tog, 2hdc in ch-3 space, 1hdc last sc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 72 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Stripes section 2 (Rows 73-86)

Just like the previous stripes section, this will be a nice part for TV crochet. Just 241 hdc’s, every row!

Row 73 (WS) Join Colour U with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 74 (RS) 241hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 75 (WS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 76 (RS) Join Colour V with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 77 (WS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 78 (RS) Join Colour U with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 79 (WS) Join Colour W with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 80 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 81 (WS) Join Colour V with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 82 (RS) Join Colour U with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 83 (WS) 241hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 84 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 85 (WS) Join Colour A with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 240hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 86 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]
