GAUGE: From center of 5-exRevTdc group to center of next 5-exRevTdc group = 3” (7.5 cm); Rows 2-4 = 21/4” (5.5 cm), with afghan hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

1. Tunisian crochet is worked from the right side only; do not turn at the end of a row.
2. Each row consists of a forward pass and a reverse pass.
3. Always skip the first vertical bar when working the Forward Pass. Insert the hook into the second vertical bar at the beginning of the row.
4. If you hold the hook in your right hand, you will work the forward pass, picking up loops, from right to left. And you will work the return pass, working off loops, from left to right. If you hold the hook in your left hand, you will work the forward and return passes in the opposite directions.
5. Carry color not in use along wrong side of right edge.
A, B, C = Color A, Color B, Color C etc.;
ch = chain;

For reverse pass: Yarn over and draw through first 3 loops; *[ch 1, yarn over and draw through next 2 loops] five times; ch 1, yarn over and draw through next 6 loops; repeat from * to last 4 loops, ch 1, drop B, yarn over with A and draw through all 4 loops—121 (151) exRevTdc.

For me, this Seafoam Tunisian Throw looks very challenging to make. Looking at the pattern, it seems like I need to really learn how to do the stitches. The color used that represents the sea lives up to its label but it is suggested that you may used a completely different color for this project.

correction ...that you may use a completely different color for this project.

I love this Seafoam Tunisian Throw! With the easy pattern here on this page it will work out great! I have to agree with BParker, the pattern does seem to do be wrong on the color change at row 3. I will just follow the picture to do the color change. Tunisian crochet can be so much fun by just following the the written stitch how to. Love the look of the stitches too. I so want to make this one to add to my other tunisian throws. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is a beautiful pattern but I am confused about the color changes. On row 2 it says to change back to color A but then at the end of row 3 it says to drop B and yarn over with A. This does not come out right. Was this a misprint?
