New! Photo tutorial on my blog!
There’s a great expression in English: “to jump on the bandwagon.” It means to go along with the crowd. I’ve never been someone to follow the herd. Because of this, I was a terrible Girl Scout: I refused to participate in getting badges with others in my troop, nor did I care how many boxes of cookies I sold each year.
So I knew I wouldn’t be jumping on the Shelly Kang “Sock Yarn Blanket” bandwagon. Even though I contributed some scraps to her original blanket way back in 2006. Even though many of my friends have been making beautiful blankets for years.
And then I started accumulating – you guessed it – sock yarn scraps. Scads and scads of sock yarn scraps. What to do? I gave lots away. I used lots more to make a few granny square blankets. And then I happened to notice that – oh, the horror! – there didn’t seem to be a Tunisian crochet equivalent of Shelly’s knit blanket.
Here, then, are a few notes on how to make a Tunisian crochet sock yarn blanket. Yes, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon. Will you?
(P.S. You have much to answer for, Shelly Kang!)
