Once you learn the Tunisian crochet wave stitch, you’ll be ready to make our Jessica throw or create your very own pattern.
The Tunisian crochet wave stitch is a four-row repeat pattern that has endless color combination possibilities.
The Yarn + Colors for The Jessica Throw
For the Jessica throw, I wanted to create something that reminded me of the incredible landscapes of Arches National Park in Moab.
The rolling hills, mountains, and rocks feature colors such as reds, oranges, yellows, and blues.
Here are the colors I chose for the throw:
- Bee Pollen
