A Patchwork Blanket….

Trying not to shop for yarn is harder than I thought it was going to be. Michael’s keeps sending me reminders of 40% off this week, last week was buy 1 get the 2nd ½ off, and who knows what the next sale will be?

I decided to use up all of my unused yarn both scraps and full skeins of yarn. I have one, maybe two full blankets left. In other words, crocheting whatever piece of yarn I have left. I am working on a gray & pink blanket that I am calling a “patchwork blanket.”

TUNISIAN KNIT STITCH CROCHET / BEGINNER  Claudetta Crochet    Jan 28, 2019 Hello Everyone, today I am going to show u how to Tunisian crochet the KNIT STITCH! Very easy and great for Beginners. Also, I will show u how to work with two colors. Used Yarn : https://www.lovecrafts.com/de-de/p/ri… {}

Video #1 : I gave up on trying to follow. Her words were clear and I was able to do two rows, but that third row was a no go for me. I will try again.

I turned the tunsian knit stitch (the pink & gray together) into a triple stitch. I was going to post a video, but after watching what an actual triple crochet stitch looks like, I realized I didn’t actually do a normal triple stitch. 

The next box was done in tiny granny squares: pink and two shades of gray..

Video # 3: This was the coolest stitch. It was fun adding each granny square together, but it’s a lot of work.

The next big square is both light and dark gray

Video # 4: This is an easy stitch that could be used for almost any project. I have also made scarfs as well as full size blankets.

video # 5: The dark pink square was done in this basket weave stitch and I cannot wait to do a full size blanket in this stitch. I wonder how it would look using three or more colors?

I never know how big any of my blankets will be, because I keep crocheting  until I am either done with the yarn or the pattern I am working on.  I am going to keep on crocheting as many projects I can with what yarn I have until I can start selling them.

Bye IV Now, LD*
