Notes

One of the members of my crochet club showed me how to do Tunisian crochet. Thought I’d try a simple project to use up some of my stylecraft stash. The YouTube video by in a nutshell is fantastic. I must have watched it about 20 times for some of the starting sections. Much easier now though I still struggle a bit with the beginning corners.

I’m now getting better at the corners and the whole thing is looking more even. I’m trying to introduce a few more colours from my stash and just doing one side in each colour rather than an L shape. The stitches are a bit boring to do after a while. The corners make it more interesting. It has a lovely texture though. I’ve got some variegated yarn to try in there too. It may end up as a bit of a hotchpotch blanket.

Finished the blanket - it was getting a bit boring just doing the one stitch on the long runs from each corner. The texture was lovely.

I used this border to add a bit of weight and a different texture https://youtu.be/Es4w6x-QGGM. I used only one stitch after the wrap-arounds rather than 2 in the video. I used a size 3 hook and the tension seemed about right.
