Have you heard of Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL 2021? If not, let me tell you something about it. This CAL is organized and hosted by the talented Arunima of Knitter Knotter. It consists of 24 FREE Tunisian Square Patterns from different amazing designers. This squares will be seamed together to make a beautiful blanket.
I have been working on my square contribution for a while now and I am so delighted to finally share it with you. This square is crocheted mainly with Tunisian Knit Stitch with the addition of what I called “cone” Tunisian stitch. I am really not sure if there is such a stitch so let us just call it Cone Stitch.
The inspiration for this stitch was taken from the cone crochet stitch. I have first seen it on YouTube and I thought it is a great stitch to incorporate to my Tunisian square. So without anymore delay, let us dive in to our pattern.
