Hooray! I’ve finally finished writing up the pattern for my new blanket – Tunisian Sunset. Isn’t she pretty!
If you follow me on instagram you would’ve seen her in the making and I just loved every colourful minute of making this one. All those pretty sunset-ty colours just make my heart sing and dream of happy sunny places far far away.
Would you like to make one too? Well, the good news is that you can. I’ve just popped the pattern up in my etsy and ravelry stores.

It’s quite an easy make – using only Tunisian Simple stitch and a clever, almost invisible join-as-you go technique. It’s also the perfect project to pick up in your spare moments and complete a square here and there and before you know it, you’ll have a finished blanket.
Oh! and it’s a great pattern for stash-busting too. Here’s another version I’m working on using up all my bit’s and bobs of DK yarn. The squares are slightly smaller in this one but the technique is the same ..
If you’ve never tried Tunisian crochet before but would love to have a go at making this blanket (go on … you know you want to 😉 , I have a tutorial on how to do Tunisian Simple Stitch over here at My Poppet blog. Once you’ve mastered this stitch you’re good to go and will have found a new craft addiction too!
Until next time
