Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’ re looking for a slightly different way to crochet blanket, you’re in the right place. Tunsian crochet uses a different hook and motions making it perfect when you need a little break from your regular hooks. Our full stitch Tunisian crochet blanket is available in 7 sizes so we have you covered no matter what you’re looking for.

With this project you’ll get lot’s of practice with the full stitch, a stitch that creates a thick but flexible fabric. On one side it looks woven while on the other, it looks like the knit garter stitch. We used 5 different colors (and have the pattern written as such) however, you can use as many or as few colors as you want. The best part is that it’s versatile enough to use just about any medium weight yarn you have in your stash.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions and a tutorial to walk you through our full stitch blanket from start to finish.
