Sunny Daze Flower

A few weeks ago I bought a pattern because I fell in love with design and then I found out it was Tunisian Crochet. I have never tried Tunisian crochet before, even though I have always found it fascinating and a pretty texture. I guess this an opportunity for me to learn how to do it, as I really wanted my own Sunny Daze blanket! 

This is my progress from the past few days, and I am absolutely head over heels in love with it! The colours are very similar to the pattern colours, as I didn't want it to be any different. 


I got a 4mm Tunisian crochet hook (my favourite size of course!), and for those of you that have never seen one. It looks like a crochet hook at the end of a knitting needle. It is nothing like knitting though, just like a funkier way of crochet!


Here I thought I'd give you a close look at the stitches on my crochet hook at the moment, which I know looks like knitting but it is definitely not. When I am crocheting this blanket, the number of stitches on my hook increase by one with every round I do, so I will be curious to see how this will look later on.


Finding this pattern has really opened my eyes to the idea of Tunisian crochet, and I am tempted to find more patterns in the Tunisian crochet style! Have you ever tried it, or thought of trying it?

I am going to link this in with Tami's blog, head over there to see other WIPs

Take care

  1. I was just over on Crochet the Day Away's blog saying how I wanted to learn Tunisian crochet and you've got me going now! LOL! I love that pattern and would like to make a small version for my table. I've made so many blankets I need to lay low on those for awhile. Ha! Ha! I love the colors too and when I see something I love then I want to make it exactly the same. I'm so excited now to try it! What's another WIP in the grand scale of WIP's? LOL! You're doing a beautiful job. I only hope I can do as well. TFS!

  2. Ooh, l.o.v.e! I saw a pattern a little while ago for a bathmat in Tunisian crochet and thought at the time it was probably too complicated for me!
    It's going to be a fab blankie :-)

  3. Ooooooh Hazel, that blanket looks amazing. I have looked and read about Tunisian crochet and often thought about giving it ago.
    Now your post has made me want to go order a hook and yarn. That'll be another project on the go and I'll need to get another nice basket to put that project in.
    Keep me posted on how it's going and I'll let you know when my hook comes lol.

  9. That is lovely. I've done a little bit of tunisian crochet but this design is just gorgeous. I'm sorely tempted to have a go myself but am trying to clear a back-log of projects at the moment.

  11. Something must be in the air about Tunisian crochet! I've seen several people blogging about it and I just bought a book by Kim Guzman to learn how to do it. Your work is absolutely gorgeous and very inspirational! I need to get to work on this soon!

  13. Tunisian crochet is a lot of fun. I was super hesitant to try it but I am so glad I did. There are several tutorials online for Tunisian crochet....one in particular that explains 3 color Tunisian. Makes a beautiful pattern on the front and the back of the blanket. Hard to describe but it's just gorgeous. Tunisian can be hard to get used to at first but whatever time you spend figuring it out is well worth it.
