    Hi! Love this 😀, can you tell us what the finished size will be?

      Sure thing! The finished blanket will be about 64″ long x 54″ wide.

    Toni, I’m attempting to get most of the yarn from Joann’s since Lionbrand.com is out of stock already. Will your videos be available after the Holiday CAL2020 is over, in case I’m still waiting for yarn?

      I need something close to elephant grey

        That color has been a little tough to find. Lion Brand’s Elephant Gray is back in stock, though.

    Yep, same here. The Lion brand store on Amazon says the Taupe listed will be back in stock on Oct. 8, and I’m hoping to see if there are good substitutes you’d recommend.

    Cannot wait to get started! This is going to be good.

      If you’re prefer another yarn, most yarn lines have something similar. I know Red Heart has Red Heart With Love and Super Saver. There’s also Caron One Pound. Yarns like that make great substitutions in this pattern.

    Michael’s carries the Pound of Love brand. I purchased all my yarn there and took advantage of their sale – Buy 2 Get 1 Free, sale.

    I love Tunisian crochet. I was going to make a baby blanket one year for the fair and used a nice soft baby yarn. There was no…integrity to the stitches. The yarn was so soft the design was barely there.

    I have a Hobby Lobby and a Walmart that I can buy yarn from. Is there a specific yarn that will hold the designs well but still feel wonderful?

      Hi! For this pattern, I used a smooth worsted weight yarn. So I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby or Red Heart Super Saver from Walmart would work. Both yarns get incredibly soft after you wash them 🙂

        I got Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek Low Pill Fiber yarn in Dark Gray, Light Gray, Brownie, and Sea Blue.

    I ended up buying Herrschners’ brand yard because I was having so much trouble finding yarn in colors my mom and I liked that she could afford. I’m hoping the yardage translates properly and I did the math right. I’m really looking forward to this as I’ve recently discovered and fallen in love with Tunisian crochet.

    I’d be interested in doing this in a cotton option as we are heading into summer here in Australia. Does Lion Brand have anything that might work? I’ve not used their yarns before

    September 26, 2020 at 3:51 am
    • Reply Toni L.

      Hi Susan! I haven’t done a blanket this size in cotton, so it’s tough to say. Their Pima Cotton could be a good choice, as could 24/7 Cotton. Again, I haven’t made a blanket with either of these yarns, so these recommendations are just a guess. There may be something you prefer in your local shops. Swapping out to a yarn you’re more familiar with will likely ensure that you’re happy with the end result.

    I’m a new Tunisian crocheter. Is this going to be too challenging?

    • Reply Toni L.

      Hi! I talked a little about this in the blog post, but the short answer is yes it will be challenging, but NO it will not be *too* challenging. This is a chance for you to try something new and stretch outside your comfort zone. There will be written patterns and tutorial videos for each technique as we go along.

      I was reading through the comments and was going to ask the same thing. I’ve never tried the Tunisian crochet but this pattern is so beautiful. Not sure about giving it a try if it’s too advanced for me.

    When you say, “Videos will go live on Monday” do you mean the tutorial will be a live event or the videos will be posted on your blog for us to access and begin stitching?

    Hi! I only have a 14 inch fixed tunisian crochet hook 🙁 I am trying to find/order a 16inch but everything that isn’t in a set is sold out, and I already asked for a set of interchangables for Christmas. Do you think 14 inch fixed is long enough? Super looking forward to learning TC through this!!

    October 5, 2020 at 9:39 am
    • Reply Toni L.

      A 14″ fixed hook should be just fine for this. The finished squares are 12 inches, so you should have plenty of space on your hook for your loops 🙂

    Will your tutorial videos remain on YouTube after the CAL is officially over? I’m helping my mom learn and it may take her 3 years to complete this but she’s determined. Your videos help so much.

    I’d like to know if we can buy just one pattern for one of the squares (the tree pattern)? I’m a beginner and know I can’t do this whole project (even though I broke my foot and have nothing else to do besides crochet), so seeing if I can master just one would be really helpful while. I’m grateful youtube can slow down videos–you stitch FAST! Thanks for teaching the Tunisian!

      Hi KC – thanks for your message. I do not offer the PDF patterns of the individual squares, only the full PDF with each of the squares. But, in the PDF, the patterns are on their own pages.

    First I want to tell you how much I am enjoying this project. I have never tried tunisian crochet and I love it! I got the email with the updated pattern, but can you tell me which pages have updates. I don’t want to print the entire project again. thank you!

      Hi! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the project 🙂 The only pages you should reprint are the Home Square and the Lacy Shells Square. No other changes were made 🙂

    Hi Toni! If we buy the PDF, will the Intarsia option be included? I haven’t tried it before and it looked interesting. Thanks!

      Hi! The PDF version only lists the stranded colorwork technique, as that’s what I used in the original sample. But you can use the same concept to work your square with intarsia instead of stranded colorwork.

    I love this pattern SO much! I can’t crochet to save my life (I’ve tried to teach myself numerous times), but I can knit the basic handful of stitches and I have made a Tunisian crochet Star Wars blanket (using the stitches used in the HOME square). I was hesitant to buy the pattern for fear of not being able to do it but your patterns are so detailed and consistent. The videos? OMGOSH. You are the best teacher ever! I’m on my 8th square, the lattice stitch. I’m making this one for my mom for Christmas and I already have more yarn purchased to make a 2nd blanket for a dear friend in CA for Christmas as well. I’m pleased as punch and already thinking about what colors I want to use for my blanket. 😃 THANK YOU SO MUCH! Too much fun.

    Hi Toni, I am wondering why not every stitch has a tutorial? They are all not linked. Is there a place to find them, ie; the bobble stitch etc?
