A Tunisian Crochet Blanket for Beginners
One thing that I love about this Tunisian crochet pattern is that it’s a very simple pattern to make. It may look complicated, but I promise you it’s not. It’s just a simple repeat of two stitches that alternate in one row.
Sounds pretty easy right? So once you’ve made your first row, then all you have to do for the second row is alternate between a Tunisian simple stitch and a Tunisian purl stitch. Then the following row is made by working a Tunisian purl stitch first and then a Tunisian simple stitch.
After that, it just becomes a simple repeat of rows 2 and 3. So to crochet a Tunisian simple stitch, you want to insert your hook into a vertical bar, yarn over, and pull through and for a Tunisian purl stitch, you want to first wrap your yarn in front, insert your hook into the vertical bar, wrap your yarn behind the hook, and then pull through.
That’s it for these stitches!
The Yarn You’ll Use for This Cozy Throw
For this Tunisian crochet blanket, you will need 4 balls of Lion Brand Re-Spun Thick & Quick Yarn in the color Night Sky.
I absolutely loved working with this yarn and highly recommend it for this project. It’s a super bulky weight yarn that’s made from 100% recycled polyester yarn. It’s a very soft yarn with a great stitch definition.
Plus, it comes in 18 different colors. My favorites are Sepia Rose, which is what I used in my Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern and I also love Hazelwood. What are your favorite colors in this yarn line?
If you wanted to substitute this yarn or simply can’t get a hold of it, I would recommend Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn, it’s a bit thicker and made of a wool blend, but it would definitely work for this pattern.
