Named after the tops of European castles, the Bargello Crochet Stitch Pattern is a unique and useful stitch pattern. Can you see the resemblance? The written stitch pattern gives sizes for baby blanket all the way up to king size and beyond. Also included in this crochet stitch tutorial is a crochet symbol chart which gives a great visual for how to crochet this amazing stitch. Work this up in any number of projects, from crochet granny squares to baby blankets - this would look stunning as the sole pattern in a crochet thrown design!


Crochet Hook: E/4 or 3.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (3) Light/DK (21-24 stitches to 4 inches)

This Bargello crochet stitch pattern is unique. Here's the link to the pattern http// == 4/victorianstepbobwilson123andthecrochetcase.pdf.

I found this pattern to be very easy and fast! I've done Bargello tapestry work, but have never seen a crochet version - beautiful! Thanks!

I had a HORRIBLE time with this stitch using this particular pattern. I even watched the video accompanying this, but the person filmed was constantly changing her instructions. I eventually figured it out on my own after nearly 12 attempts / tear-outs. The key here is that the chains form the 'merlons' (high portion of row). So as you approach the high point, you slip stitch in the top of the ch 3 (previous row), ch 3, dc in 2 dc and then ch 3, then slip stitch in the top of the ch 3 to complete the merlon. This also brings you level to the low point (crenel) which is just 2 dc. Once you get this down, the pattern is simple, goes fast and looks gorgeous. I'm making a baby blanket with this stitch for my German co-worker.

Here is the link it should take you to:

I have tried the 2 links this takes me to, 5 times each and neither page will load. I give up!

Can you see me turning cartwheels? It finally downloaded. One thing everyone needs to know is, that the it doesn't let you know you are downloading it. It doesn't show it downloading or come up after it has. You may have to check your downloads or documents several times before it shows up there.

Cannot get it ......I have just jumps right back to this page!!!!!! :/

I have Adobe but the link just takes me right back to this page with no PDF pattern

Check your download files. I downloaded it about 9 times before I figured out what was going on. Lol!

It won't go to the pattern page.

Hi Member 7800263, The pattern clicks through to a PDF. To download any PDF, you will need to have Adobe installed on your computer if you do not already (it is free). For downloading instructions, please see Adobes website here: Happy crocheting!

I have PDF but it doesn't take me to it either, just brings me back here every time.

Do you know if the pattern uses US crochet terms?

Hi TooCrafty! It appears that this pattern is written in US crochet terms. If you scroll towards the bottom there is a key for all abbreviations. Hope this helps! - editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
