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
