Seafoam Tunisian Throw

By: Darla J. Fanton for redheart.com

Dive right into this free crochet throw pattern and crochet your own Seafoam Tunisian Throw. Reminiscent of the sea, this intermediate crochet blanket pattern is fun to crochet. Use ocean blue colored yarn as shown or go for a completely different color scheme. The choice is up to you, but you should definitely give this crochet throw a try!

Materials:

  • RED HEART® Soft®: 4 (5) balls 9520 Seafoam A, 2 (2) balls 9518 Teal B
  • Susan Bates® Crochet Hooks: 6.5 mm [K-10 ½ US] 14” Afghan/ Tunisian hook and 6 mm [J-10 US] crochet hook (for edging only)
  • Yarn needle


Size:
Directions are for Lapghan; changes in parentheses are for Throw.
Lapghan measures 48” (122 cm) x 36” (91.5 cm) wide.
Throw measures 55” (139.5 cm) long x 45” (114.5 cm) wide.

Gauge/Tension:
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.

Special Stitches:
Tunisian Simple Stitch (Tss) = Working from right to left, holding working yarn behind work, insert hook under next vertical bar, yarn over and draw up a loop.
Reverse Pass = Working from left to right, yarn over and draw through first loop on hook, *yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook;repeat from * across.

Notes
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.

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?

how do I print the patterns

Delicious. Maria Luisa Correia

Hope to make one.
