Bright and fun colors really make this new Tweed and True baby blanket pattern. When paired with a fun, frilly border, you’ve got a blanket that is sure to be perfect for any new baby.
Tweed and True Baby Blanket
The Tunisian Full Stitch (TFS) reminds me a bit of the Moss Stitch in regular crochet. I decided to use this stitch with the new Roll With It Tweed from Red Heart yarns because I wanted to see how it worked up. On the cake this yarn looks very tweedy, but when worked up – especially with this stitch – it creates a glorious ombre effect that is simply to die for!
I decided to use the Reverse Shell border for this blanket because the white yarn presents such a great contrast to the colorful, fun tweed yarn.
