8 Crochet Ideas for Crochet Throws, Simple Crochet Patterns, and Crochet Blanket Patterns
Mustard & Co Tunisian Crochet Blanket
We are adding the pattern to your Afghan Patterns.
This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
"This project combines popular Tunisian crochet stitches, Tunisian purl and knit stitch, in a slightly unusual combination as they are crocheted diagonally from corner to corner rather than in the most common way in straight rows. Together, they create a striking texture while giving the final project a very warm and cosy feel. The blanket is sized for toddler/small child; however it can be easily adjusted for smaller/bigger sizes by either using lighter/heavier weight yarn or reducing/adding stitch pattern row repeats. "
Below, I list possible alternatives to the yarn used for this project as this is only available from one online seller in the UK. Please note, that it is always necessary to swatch before starting a project to check the gauge to ensure your final project is as you had expected it to be.
