Tunisian Blanket Crochet-Along (CAL) 2021
The Tunisian Blanket CAL is a great initiative hosted by Arunima of Knitter Knotter to create beautiful blankets while learning multiple tunisian stitches. I named my tunisian crochet basketweave square Panye which is the Haitian Creole word for basket.
24 squares from designers you know and love are put together to bring you this crochet-along. Each designer designed at least one 12″ square which can easily assembled to make a blanket, pillow or anything else you’d like. To find out more about how this CAL works click here.
