What is the difference between the wool-eater ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430786.0#axzz2qadE3Ob6 )
and whatever this is?



I made a "Catherine Wheel" scarf using the stitch in the Crochet Stitch Dictionary book, but it doesn't look like either of these. Its more rounded and swirly.

The top one looks like Entrelac?
Wool-eater/Bavarian is similar to the Catherine Wheel, but has an extra round going around the 'wheels' to make it stand out a bit.
If you want to do one, Pinkleo is holding a CAL for it this year

The Wool-Eater (aka Bavarian Stitch) is a Wheel Stitch aka Harlequin with Back Post stitches.  The thing is that crocheters use various terms and interchange them.  With the Catherine's Wheel, one usually works into the chains stiches and use double crochet stitches; while in Harlequin aka Wheel aka Large Wheel, the chains are not worked into.  Okay, that probably doesn't help much so here's some free tutorial and pattern link...

Large Wheel Stitch - Catherine's Wheel - Harlequin - Triple Crochet

Round Shell 7 Double Crochet - Shell Variation 4 - Catherine's Wheel

Hope that helps.
Oh, and if you worked up the wool-eater without the back-post stiches, you would get your pictured results Grin

Thanks for all of your help! I'm still working on figuring out the terminology.  I'm having fun doing it, though.  Grin
