4. The Nordic Blanket

The Nordic Tunisian Crochet Blanket

The Nordic crochet blanket is an I Can Crochet That original. I had a blast creating this design.

By combining different Tunisian stitches and color changing techniques, you can create a blanket with beautiful texture and a striking blanket that really stands out.

“This blanket is whipped up using three basic Tunisian stitches, Tunisian Simple Stitch, Tunisian Purl Stitch and Tunisian Knit Stitch. Some of the color changes are started on the Return Pass and some are started on the Forward Pass.”

Have you tried the Tunisian full stitch yet? It’s a really fun stitch to play around with.

B. Hooked has created this blanket pattern using the full stitch and 5 different colors. The pattern comes in 7 different sizes.

The amazing thing about Tunisian crochet, is that one side looks completely different than the other. For this blanket, the other side or ‘wrong side” looks like the garter knit stitch.

Made with a neutral yarn that is sure to go with just about everything in your wardrobe, the Daydream Shawl has a dramatic effect with its gorgeous fringe.
