This project combines popular Tunisian crochet stitches, Tunisian purl and knit stitch, in a slightly unusual combination as they are crocheted diagonally from corner to corner rather than in the most common way in straight rows. Together, they create a striking texture while giving the final project a very warm and cosy feel. The blanket is sized for toddler/small child; however it can be easily adjusted for smaller/bigger sizes by either using lighter/heavier weight yarn or reducing/adding stitch pattern row repeats.
- The blanket is crocheted flat with RS always facing.
- It is crocheted in diagonal fashion starting at the bottom left edge with 2 increase stitches every row to the middle section and 2 decrease stitches to upper right corner.
- The number of loops on the hook on decrease rows refers to the resulting stitch count at the end of the forward pass.
