#TunisianTuesdayCAL – Week 6
Two new things for you to learn this week – a new stitch and changing colours.
Bearing in mind that this is a US pattern, the dc-lp (double crochet-loop) is basically a tr (treble) version of the TSS, The colour changes are done at the edges and you don’t have loads of ends to sew in as the unused colours are carried up the sides.
Don’t forget that we are posting our finished blocks in the comments on Rainbow Valley Crochet, along with some helpful information.
Helen says – I found this one quick and easy. The dc-lp stitches make it grow a lot faster. Mine is the same as in the pattern.
Faye says – I am still having to add a little extra to make mine square. This time only 1 extra row before binding off.
Don’t forget to read the rest of the post as there are hints/tips, photographs, group feedback and more.
Jane Says – ‘I like being able to see the others’ squares and get advice when stitches look different to the pattern’
Lesley say’s “I love doing it, it is very relaxing even though I am still learning it. Holding the long hook at the end takes the strain off hands. Will certainly be looking for more patterns in Tunisian crochet Be interesting to find the origins.”
#TunisianTuesdayCAL – Week 7
This block used the same dc-lp that you used last week but you have to insert the hook as you would for a TKS. See http://www.enfys.me.uk/english/tutorial/tunisian-knit.htm if you need more help.
#TunisianTuesdayCAL – Week 8
Back to basics with this one, alternating TSS and TPS. Don’t forget that we are sharing our blocks over on Rainbow Valley Crochet using the hashtags #TunisianTuesdayCAL and #FollowonFriday
We were asked “Hi, does anyone know what I keep doing wrong with the end stitch of the squares please?”
By going to the very edge and picking up the last two strands you should still have 23 stitches. Just follow the above image left to right/top row/bottom row and you should be good to go.
The Continuous Join
#FollowonFriday Here is the link to the continuous joining for the 5 blocks you have made so far.
Of course, you do not have to join them in the same order as I have and you don’t have to join them just yet if you would prefer to wait until you have made more.
You can download the tutorial from – Rainbow Valley Crochet website
