YARN - The After Party 68 - Tunisian Tiles Blanket

By Marjan Gouda

If you’re an ambitious beginner looking to get started in the art of Tunisian crochet, take a look at this modern colourblock design by Marjan Gouda. Measuring 140 x 174cm, the Tunisian Tiles Blanket would make a generous single bed throw and is perfect for sofa snuggles. You’ll use the Tunisian Simple Stitch throughout and the intarsia technique to change colours along each row, before finishing with a classic crocheted border. Made using Scheepjes Softfun, the pattern is featured in two palettes - fresh Daybreak and the warm summery shades of Sunset. Marjan arranged the shades in diagonal chequered blocks to create an attractive colour fade effect.

Gentle to the touch, Softfun yarn benefits from the breathability of cotton and the easy-care properties of lightweight, durable acrylic. From gentle pastels to vibrant brights, the vast range of 89 colours allows makers ample opportunity to experiment with their favourite colours throughout their project!

The Tunisian Tiles Blanket pattern can be found in YARN – The After Party 68, which contains the written instructions and colour placement chart.
