TUNISIAN CROCHET KITS

TUNISIAN CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN INSPIRATION:

The sky and clouds theme is a common one we see in nursery room decor and in the past I have designed using this surface bobble stitch technique and it turned out very cute so I thought I would attempt it with this beautiful and super soft Bernat Forever Fleece. What makes this an even more special design is that my little guy actually helped me pick these colors out at a recent trip to JoAnns!

This blanket pattern is also part of the Giftstravaganza Blog Hop hosted by Marie of Underground Crafter. This blog hop featured a new FREE design each day this month featuring handmade holiday gift ideas! My feature date is November 18th and you will be able to grab the PDF for FREE for 24 hours starting on Nov. 18th!

Although you can use yarn from your stash, since this is a themed blanket, it’s preferable you use the same colors. I used Comfy Worsted yarn which was kindly gifted by We Crochet!

YARN:

Comfy Worsted in Thicket – (COL A) 1340 yards (Size 4 worsted weight yarn; 1.8 oz/ 50 g, 109 yds/100 m; 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic)

Comfy worsted in Parchment –  (COL B) 1330 yards (Size 4 worsted weight yarn; 1.8 oz/ 50 g, 109 yds/100 m; 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic)

I absolutely loved working with this yarn. It is a perfect cotton blend for little ones’ sensitive skin since its made up of Pima cotton and acrylic! It is super soft and I love the variety of colors provided! These colors fit my Wild One theme vision so well, it’s the perfect color scheme and I couldn’t be happier. This yarn is also machine washable and dryable which makes it perfect for little ones!
