Tunisian Baby Blanket

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Pretty Pink by Mary Middleton Link to website or photo www.anniesattic.com/crochet/detail.html?prod_id=23762 What advice would you give someone starting this project? I needed a quick project for my new cousin so I decided to do this using two strands. I decided not to do the last two rows of the boarder and just finished off with a forward and reverse row of tunisian and a row of sc. Clean finish. Nice warm blanket for winter and fun to do.

What you will need

Dawn F Blake asked:
Is it difficult to learn how to do Tunisian crochet? beautiful project by the way!
Love2Crochet answered:
I have downloaded a couple of PDFs from Annie's Attic which have given me enough information to pick up this technique. It is also referred to as Crochenit but I cant see any difference. Also, there are great tutorials on line such as Stitch Diva. I didnt find it difficult once I had the correct tools.
Shear Girl asked:
I was wondering if there is a way to print off the directions. This is a cute blanket and I have never done anything with the tunisian stitch.
Love2Crochet answered:
I bought "Its Time to Crochenit" from Annies Attic and received the e-book by download. Click on the pattern link and you should go directly to the product page. Both Annie's Attic and Stitch Diva have a lot of designs and instruction on Tunisian/Crochenit. It is fun to do.

I am a beginner looking for a very easy pattern is this an easy one
Love2Crochet answered:
I found it very easy and did not get tangled too much whilst getting use to the long hook. I made a couple of mistakes by not collecting three loops on the return row, and unfortunately they werent picked up until the following row, but they cant be seen really. I should have done the border in the back loop, realising that if i had followed this instruction is would have sat much flatter, but overall it was a fun, easy project which taught me alot.
