Let’s Talk Crafty Christmas…Part 2

Angelique’s present this year was a challenge for me, but I learned a lot. It is my very first Tunisian crochet project (well, completed project anyway).

This was an interesting experiment.

The pattern is Ziggurat, designed by my friend Alexis.

It’s mostly tunisian mesh with a section of striping.

The colors scream “Angelique”…and this will look great with that new shawl pin she bought at Stitches West.

This was actually a great beginner tunisian crochet pattern, although I really wish there were more online resources for Tunisian crochet in general. It seemed like finding tutorials for different stitches was difficult for me. Maybe at some point I might have to spring for a stitch/pattern book or something. I haven’t yet because it feels like all of the tunisian projects I see pictures of on the internet would be popular for an age range much higher than mine. This pattern, however, had a more modern feel to it.

Trying something new…

I’ve been a busy bee! Between the new job and the new knit group, I haven’t had much time to get stuff done. However, I’ve decided that, if I have a free moment, I should get down to business on making things for Christmas.

Luckily, I took Lexi’s Tunisian Crochet class at CogKNITive again this year. I seriously needed the refresher! I had started a baby blanket way back for Blanketeers, but promptly forgot what I was doing and had stowed it in the back of my minivan.

Lexi had been wearing something she designed in tunisian crochet, and it was lovely. I bought her pattern and now I am practicing. Of course I can’t give you too many details…because, well, Christmas.

This decided it didn’t want to be for it’s intended recipient, so I started a new one.
