Bavarian Crochet (aka Wool Eater) is a type of crochet stitch or pattern that uses multiple stitches together to create a raised or ridged look in the finished product. It is mainly used to make blankets.
Free patterns for this style of crocheting are pretty much non-existent so in this post I will be sharing with you all the information that I can find about Bavarian Crochet.
