Welcome to the Tunisian Blanket CAL of 2024! This marks the fifth year of our blanket CAL, and I’m thrilled to share this year’s project with you.

For the 2024 CAL, we’ll be making 30 hexagons, each featuring a unique pattern. The CAL will run from January 2nd to right before Thanksgiving (see the full schedule below). Throughout the CAL, I’ll be releasing patterns for all 30 hexagons, along with instructions for joining them and adding a border to the blanket.

I’m thrilled with how my blanket turned out, and I can’t wait to see yours! I hope you’re as excited about this CAL as I am. Let’s make some beautiful blankets together!

TECHNIQUE AND DIFFICULTY
Intermediate - You should be comfortable working in the round with a double-ended hook.

If you’re new to Tunisian-In-The-Round, consider taking the course ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Tunisian-In-The-Round’ before starting this CAL.

SIZE
The size of the hexagons will depend on the yarn you picked. The measurements here are based on the gauge mentioned in the pattern. Each hexagon has edges of size 8” (20 cms).

YARN
I made my blanket with KnitPicks Chroma Fingering Yarn in colors Bare and Vermont.

HOOK
For this blanket, I built a double-ended hook using two hooks: one size 5 mm (H-8) for the forward pass and another size 4.5 mm (7) for the return pass.

You could also use one with two hooks of the same size at both ends.
