Types of Crochet: Bavarian Crochet

Bavarian crochet or also known as the Bavarian square is a beautiful and unique way to add texture to a project by using different colors for a vivid and bright look.
The Bavarian square is made of flowers in one color set at the center and outlined with a second color.  These outlines are created by working back post stitches around the outside of the flowers. The pattern increases in flowered rounds.
These squares can be joined together just like ordinary granny squares for amazing colorful projects. Not just perfect for afghans,  blankets or potholders, but also for some innovative use like hats and shawls. I imagine a skirt. You?

Tutorial here and here.

This type of crochet stitch is beautiful. It looks very complicated to make though.
