Tunisian (Afghan) Crochet

I have been playing about with Tunisian crochet lately (also known as Afghan crochet) but have not really made anything with it …. until now!

I purchased a cheap pack of Tunisian crochet hooks from Amazon.  I didn’t want to spend too much on them just in case I hated it lol.

Happily I can say I don’t hate it, I absolutely love this sort of crochet.  It’s like a hybrid of crochet and knitting, using a long needle like knitting but with a crochet hook on the end. See pic:

The Tunisian simple stitch (TSS) pattern is so easy once you get into it and the texture of the finished piece turns out really lovely.  It creates a quite dense fabric, perfect for warm cosy pillows, blankets and Afghans.

I found this easy to follow pattern / tutorial:

http://www.simplycrochetmag.co.uk/2014/10/30/tunisian-crochet-expert-guide/

I was originally planning on making a white and lemon check baby blanket but I  changed my mind halfway through (as you do 😂) and I am now in the process of making a tote bag.

Here’s a few pictures of what the Tunisian simple stitch (TSS) looks like. The front side looks a bit like a grid:

image

The back looks wavy / bumpy:

image

The added bonus of this simple pattern is it gives a grid like finish to the front side of pattern, which makes it so easy to add surface crochet / cross stitch on to.

image.jpg

Not really neat and I haven’t got a clue what I’m trying to make with the cross stitch above but hey you get the idea …. right?!

I can feel endless possibilities of new ideas coming to life!

See you all soon with more ideas and projects

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet – Pattern Link

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet – Pattern Link. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!. Create this great little project to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th.

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet - Pattern Link

Here’s a bit of general knowledge about St. Patrick’s Day, if you fancy reading it!

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world on the 17th March each year to mark the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death (Patron saint of Ireland). This information was found from www.history.com

St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.

https://www.history.com/topics/st-patricks-day

Want to know 7 surprising facts about St. Patrick’s Day and legends? Check this blog out at http://www.history.com https://www.history.com/news/st-patricks-day-facts

Anyway, enough of the history lesson! Let’s get on with the Shamrock Granny Square Crochet project.

Carrying on with the St. Patrick’s Day theme from a couple of weeks ago where I made the Shamrock Crochet Brooch Pattern – Free Link. I took the inspiration from this to make a solid granny square to celebrate this theme.

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet - Pattern Link

Process

Create your granny square and brooch from the pattern links above.

Attach the four leaf clover brooch to the centre of each granny square and add an extra row around outside edge of granny square.

Make as many as you need and swap the contrasting colours, like I have done. These could be turned into a blanket or table runner, you decide.

Pink, grey & white granny square blanket with matching throw cushions

I made these for my 14yr old daughter, she is pleased with them …. I think!

The granny square is an easy project for someone new to crocheting.

There are lots of patterns for granny squares to follow on the internet, like this:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Crochet-a-Granny-Square/

The blanket was made out of 42 squares, all individually joined at the end with a simple single crochet.

img_1779-1.jpgimg_1782-3.jpg

Throw Cushions

I made two different styles of throw cushions.

The one below was made like the granny square blanket, I just kept adding more rounds until it measured the same size of cushion insert.

img_1778-3

The other one, picture below, was made using this pattern:

http://www.mypurposeinlifeisjoy.com/2017/02/06/solid-granny-square/

img_1778-2.jpg

I am making another set of these because my other daughter now wants one but in different colours: white, grey and navy blue.  I will upload soon.

See you soon
