Tunisian Tuesday CAL

Tunisian Sampler Afghan

After a successful workshop July 2017, Faye (Unravel & Unwind) and I decided we would like to improve our Tunisian skills.  We found a gorgeous blanket by Carolyn Christmas, with 35 different blocks and have decided to make one each week.

Of course, the idea evolved (as all good ideas do) and it has turned into "Tunisian Tuesday CAL".

The idea is to make one block each week.

We are not making them in the order of the pattern, we are choosing them carefully to start with the easiest and to get a good combination of colours.  Faye and I will make them in advance and share ours to tell you which block we have chosen.

If you would like to join in, you are most welcome. You can buy the pattern on Ravelry by Carolyn Christmas.

If you post pictures on social media, we would appreciate you tagging them with #TunisianTuesdayCAL so that we can find them.

Faye and I are using Stylecraft Special DK and a 5.00mm tunisian hook.  We appreciate that this is not as stated in the pattern and that ours will turn out a little smaller than the stated finished size.

Some of the colour combinations chosen by participants.

Empire, Cream, Turquoise and Aspen Copper, Stone, Khaki and Meadow Violet, White, Bluebell and Wisteria Gold, Camel, Burgundy and Peony Mustard, Silver, Petrol and Storm Blue
