Creamsicle Tunisian Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern – The Inspiration
It’s funny the way our subconscious mind works. When I sat down with my yarn and Tunisian hook, I knew I wanted to make a Tunisian crochet baby blanket but I wasn’t sure what it would look like. Although I was trying to get into Fall mode, creamsicles were at the back of my mind. I guess I’m not ready to let all summery things go! This along with the fact that I recently made the Sweet Gingham baby blanket (pattern by Toni from TLYarncrafts) and that I have constantly been looking at my book “Tunisian Crochet Workshop” by Michelle from Poppy & Bliss helped the concept formulate in my mind! Completing the Sweet Gingham Baby Blanket ignited a love for Tunisian crochet colorwork and constantly seeing the bright colors that are a signature of Michelle’s work made me subconsciously want to design something with these components!

Creamsicle Tunisian Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern – The Details
This Tunisian crochet baby blanket is my first granny square style blanket using the colorwork technique. I used Big Twist Baby Yarn in Dandelion, Cotton Tail, and Lime. This is a 100% acrylic yarn in weight 4. I also used Caron Simply Soft in Bone which is also a 100% acrylic yarn but in a weight 3. Each square measures approximately 7 x 8 in. So the blanket works up pretty quickly. I am still working on joining the squares and making a border. So you’ll have to wait for another blog post soon to see the finished piece. I’ll be looking for pattern testers soon so be on the lookout for an application by the end of next week! Join my mailing list here to get all the updates!
Inspiration in Sweet Summer Memories
This pattern fits in perfectly with the feelings that I have towards summer. When I think of summer, I think of popsicles and ice cream. I still do love eating these treats although now I have to share with my little man anytime I eat them. Whenever I have a popsicle or ice cream, it takes me back to my childhood when I used to enjoy these yummies with my cousins during the hot summer days while watching shows on Nickelodeon.
