Tweed and True Tunisian Crochet baby blanket

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.

  1. HI, Ashlea, I'm using the Crayon color of this tweed yarn to make the body of this blanket. I nearing the end of making the body of this blanket and am wondering whether you blocked yours. I've probably ripped out at least half as many rows as I've kept. I even started the whole thing over. The sides (particularly the left side) are not exactly straight. There are some small bulges here and there. Do you think I can compensate when I do the border? One thing I discovered about the yarn -- the skeins really should all be from the same dye lot! I learned this the hard way! Thanks for your help.
      1. I finished and blocked the blanket. Because I used a totally different color (Crayon), I want to post a picture but I can't figure out where to do that.
        1. Hi Joanne! I would love to see! You can send an email with a photo to support@hearthookhome.com or share on the Heart Hook Home Facebook page =)
  2. Does the finished blanket curl much? Did you need to do anything to counteract the curl for Tunisian full stitch? Thanks!
    1. Hi Diana! Adding the border will help straighten out any curling that tends to occur with tunisian. Hope this helps!
  3. This blanket it beautiful and perfect for my friends rainbow baby due next month. I just wanted to verify that beach house was the color yarn used. When I looked it up online that color choice doesn't look as vibrant as your blanket. Thanks for sharing!
  4. I love this and want to try making it. Did you use a regular Tunisian hook or one with a cable for this size blanket? Also, do you have a brand preference for these hooks. Thank you for sharing pattern! It is absolutely beautiful!
  5. How can i make this bigger - about 44x60 for a toddler? will that really change the pattern of the colors? thanks
    1. Hi Cassie! You can customize the size by simply starting with a chain length of the blanket width you would like, then work as many rows as you like until your blanket length is reached. If your gauge matches mine, then you would start with a chain length of approximately 116 chains. As for the pattern of the colors, your stripes will be smaller, but still lovely =)
