Catherine’s Wheel Stitch

The Catherine’s Wheel stitch is a crochet classic!

I rate it intermediate but don’t be shy of a challenge, just be patient with yourself and practice before using it in a project.

I’m using Caron Simply Soft in light country peach and off-white for this sample with an H-5.00mm hook. Scroll to the end of the post if you want to skip straight to video instruction.

Start with 27 chains. Pattern repeat is 10 + 6 + 1. That means you can make a chain any multiple of 10, then add 6, then add one for the turning chain.

ROW 1: Work 1 SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. Work 1 SC into the next CH. *Skip over 3 chains, work 7 DC in the next chain. SKip 3 CH, 1 SC into each of the next 3 chains. Repeat from the * to the last 4 chains. Skip over 3 of them and work 4 DC into the very last chain on the row. Turn.

ROW 2: CH 1, 1 SC into each of the first two DC. *CH 3, work 7 double crochet together across the next 7 stitches.

(7dctog= Yarn Over, insert your hook, YO and pull through, YO and pull through 2 loops on hook, *YO and insert your hook into the next stitch, YO and pull through, YO and pull through 2 loops on hook. Repeat from * 5 more times. When you have 8 loops on your hook, YO and pull through them all.)

CH 3, 1 SC in each of the next 3 stitches, Repeat from * to last 4 stitches. CH 3, DC4tog across last 4 sts. Turn.
