I decided to get a little bit uber creative today and ended up combining a few different yarn crafts together. This is by no means a tried and tested pattern. Rather, it is a simple swatch – the result of my experimentation.
It is with great enthusiasm and encouragement that I suggest you pick up your yarn crafting skills and mix & match as you see fit. The possibilities for patterns are endless, and the results…well, who knows? You might end up with a very unique and fabulous masterpiece!
Step 1: Begin with a foundation chain (+1 more chain)
Step 2: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across
Step 3: Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc), turn
Step 4: Double crochet in each stitch across, turn
Step 5: Make this row Tunisian crochet cast on stitches
Step 6: Turn and knit this row with knitting needles – insert knitting needle behind afghan hook (as if it were another knitting needle), move stitches to knitting needle
Step 7: Knit this row
Step 8: Transfer stitches to afghan hook, just like you did with knitting needle
Step 9: Cast off Tunisian style – first 1 loop, then 2 loops at a time, until 1 loop remains on hook
Step 10: Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc), double crochet across row
Step 11: Chain 1 (counts as 1st sc), single crochet across row
Repeat each row in sequence (Steps 2 – 11) for pattern.
Until next time, happy crocheting!
