Pattern Description

  1. At less than a dollar per square, you can learn all the basics of Tunisian crochet!

  2. This blanket was designed primarily for teaching the basics of Tunisian crochet. The squares are in order of complexity and start with Beginner level stitches leading into Advanced Beginner techniques towards the end. The pattern for each square is available for free on my blog - scroll down for all links.

  3. The PDF pattern consists of 40 pages that include 25 squares and they are presented in increasing order of complexity. If you are a beginner, I recommend making them in the order they are mentioned in this document.

  4. The sizes of the squares might vary a little and that is okay. The joining technique used to join the squares will mask the difference.

  5. Pictures for each square are included in a separate document for your reference.

  6. This pattern is written in a way that each square can be made independently. The joining and border instructions are mentioned at the end.

  7. Some squares in this pattern do not come with written instructions. For all such squares, there will be a video tutorial.

  8. There are no written instructions for for the joining and border techniques that I have used in my blanket. There are links to video tutorials that you can use to follow along and make yours.

  9. The pattern with only 16 beginner level squares is available for purchase here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tunisian-sampler...

These squares were a part of a CAL I hosted in 2020. Here are the details of the CAL:

CAL Introduction

I picked up Tunisian crochet about 2 years ago and it has been a great learning experience for me! I have learnt so many stitches and techniques and I am always amazed by how much it has to offer. I am learning something new every day! This blanket CAL is my attempt to build a blanket with some simple Tunisian stitches. The aim is for people of any skill level to join and (hopefully) learn something new and have a finished product to showcase at the end!

Facebook Group
If you would like to officially join the CAL, join my KnitterKnotter Hangout group on Facebook.

About the CAL
This will be a beginner friendly Tunisian crochet blanket. The focus will be on learning and we will take it slow - we will learn 1 new stitch every week and make a 8” x 8” square. At the end of 16 weeks, we will put together all our squares and make a blanket.

The CAL starts on May 14th and is sponsored by Clover and Lion Brand Yarn. There will be prizes too! Head over to my blog for more details about the pattern, prizes and the schedule.
