It's been a little longer since I've checked in than I had intended, but I assure you it is because I have been a very busy bee working on lots of crafty projects! Today I just had to show off my very first completed project in Tunisian Crochet!
I actually finished it several weeks ago, but it was shipped all the way to Canada for a dear friend who is expecting in January. I wanted to make something that would be warm and comforting in those last few months of pregnancy (the absolute WORST in my opinion!) but also something that could be used to snuggle a newborn close or even a nursing cover up. It is made using the softest yarn I have ever touched, Sensations Angel Hair, seriously, feels like a fluffy cloud!!!
I used the Tunisian crochet book ERL bought me a couple months back as a guideline for increasing and decreasing and loosely followed a pattern for an asymmetrical shawl in the book. It is done in Tunisian Simple Stitch throughout with a size N afghan hook, which really made a nice, dense fabric and should make it very warm. I really should have measured the finished product, as I have no idea how long it is, but it can be draped in a number of ways.
Thanks for stopping by! Coming soon, more Simple Gifts and maybe even a tutorial! Stay tuned!
