Before I started my Tunisian crochet temperature blanket at the beginning of the year, I did *A LOT* of math to figure out how to make a throw sized blanket. I figured out that I could make my blanket in panels instead of one long blanket so it would be the perfect size for
To achieve this, I’d have to make my first panel, then add panels onto the right-hand side of my blanket. There’s a very easy and seamless way to join as you go in Tunisian crochet, and I’m sharing it in this super short tutorial video!

Toni L., thanks! And thanks for sharing your great posts every week!
Thanks for making this tutorial! I started a wide tunisian crochet blanket using an extended hook but started losing patience with the project and didn’t like working with the loop on the return pass. I was hoping there was a way to join strips and you showed me how. About to frog and restart using this method. Thanks!

Yay! I’m so glad you found my video! Super long Tunisian projects can be brutal. I like to join my strips as well, to keep things interesting 🙂
I’m so glad I found you. I’m just about ready to get into Tunisian Crochet. Your video is great. Can you give me some advice? I want to do a blanket like your Temperature. I’ve been crocheting for many years, self taught old lady here. Any suggestions would be so very appreciated. Thank you
