Wheel Stitch Afghan

Make a Wheel Stitch Afghan for your next crochet project. This crocheted pattern is fun and functional. Although it is worked in the round, this free crochet afghan pattern is actually rectangular in shape. It is recommended that you have some basic crochet knowledge before starting this free pattern because you will need to know how to change colors in crochet, as well as how to crochet the slip stitch, treble stitch, and back post treble crochet. The finished size is up to you because you will simply just keep crocheting until it's the right size.

Watch the video tutorial below to learn how you can master the catherine wheel stitch now that you have been able to make an entire afghan out of the wheel stitch!

I'm trying to look at the full pattern. When I click on the link that's given, all I get is the blog. No pattern. What am I doing wrong?

Hi! I just checked and it does take you to the wheel stitch pattern. It doesn't show the entire afghan but explains how to make the square. Click on the green link that reads, "Click here for pattern" and start scrolling once you get on that page and you'll start seeing the pictures and directions to make the wheel stitch pattern. Thanks, Krista, Editor

I find this Wheel Stitch Afghan very interesting. I saved the page and will be following the progress of the Afghan. It is in progress and it was said that the pattern is being done so it will come out as a afghan, not a square. I love the idea of making a rectangle of the stitch.. Following. Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.
