The Yarn

Choosing the Perfect Yarn for Your Aahan Blanket

Selecting the right yarn is crucial for the success of your Tunisian crochet project. For the Aahan Blanket, I recommend using a worsted weight yarn that feels soft and cozy to the touch. I opted for the versatile and reliable Pound of Love by Lion Brand Yarn once again! Just like I did for the previous four blankets in this textured 2-stitch Tunisian crochet blanket series!

This type of yarn is ideal for creating a warm and inviting throw blanket, afghan or baby blanket, while also allowing the textured Tunisian crochet stitches to shine. Feel free to experiment with different yarn colors and materials to make your Aahan Blanket truly your own. I chose the shade of Straw for my beautiful blanket, which I think adds some additional style to the design.

Tunisian crochet hooks

Find the Right Hook for Your Textured Blanket

You’ll need a Tunisian long hook for this Tunisian crochet project. Using the appropriate hook is essential. Choose the Tunisian crochet hook size that matches the size recommended for your chosen yarn. I used a hook from my Denise Interchangeable Hook Set to stitch this cozy blanket.

These special hooks are longer than regular crochet hooks and are designed to hold multiple loops on the hook, making it easier to work with the Tunisian crochet stitches. Make sure to have a comfortable and well-fitting hook, as it will help you create a smooth and even fabric for your blanket.

How to Avoid Curling

Tips for a Flat and Curl-Free Blanket

One common issue with Tunisian crochet blankets is curling, which can be frustrating for any crocheter. To avoid this problem with your Aahan Blanket, follow these simple tips

  • Incorporate a border to your blanket. Adding a border using Tunisian Reverse Stitch can help counteract curling and give your blanket a polished finish. And guess what? I’ve included a border in the Aahan Blanket pattern for you!
  • Block your finished blanket. Blocking helps even out the stitches and relaxes the fabric, resulting in a flatter, curl-free blanket.
  • tip for the future: And although I don’t recommend it for this pattern, you could use a larger Tunisian crochet hook than recommended for your yarn. This helps create a looser tension and reduces the chances of your blanket curling.

If you have projects where you are struggling with curling, check out this post where I discuss different ways to deal with curling in Tunisian crochet!

Blocking

As this crochet pattern uses two different basic Tunisian crochet stitches, it is highly recommended to block the blanket before use.

Steam blocking has been found to be the most suitable method for acrylic yarn; therefore, my blanket was stretched, pinned to a blocking board, and then steam blocked.

Rows 31-40 is 10 rows but only 5 rows listed for pattern. what are the other 5 rows? or is it repeated 2x?

Hello Anna, the rows are repeated 2x so it will be: Repeat rows 26-30 twice.

I'm confused! For row 8 and those that follow, if I start with 7 TRS, I'm back at the beginning. Are the stitches in () worked into the 7 TRS I just made?
