Tunisian Blanket CAL 2024 – Joining Instructions

Welcome to the join instructions of the Ipsa Tunisian Blanket CAL of 2024!!

I usually release the joining instructions towards the end of the CAL. However, in my previous CALs, many people have requested these instructions earlier. So, I’ve decided to share them in the middle of the CAL instead of waiting until the end.

This way, you can get a head start on joining your pieces and won’t have to wait as long. I hope this makes the process more enjoyable and convenient for you.

Ipsa Tunisian Blanket CAL of 2024 by KnitterKnotter - the hexagons are worked in-the-round in a continuous spiral and utilize knit and reverse stitches to create beautiful designs.

About the Ipsa Blanket CAL

In this CAL we will create 30 hexagons together, 20 main ones and 10 in the extension pack. Patterns are released on Tuesday mornings at 10 AM AEST (Melbourne Time) according to the schedule which you can find here.

We started the CAL with a smaller practice hexagon that also doubles up as a gauge swatch. I strongly recommend making it before you jump in and start making your final hexagons.

This is an intermediate level CAL, but many beginners have successfully attempted this technique since last week. You can find very supportive community in my Facebook group, where you can share your work and ask questions.

There are two main posts where I share all the preliminary information that I suggest reading before starting your project:
1. CAL Introduction – Schedule, pattern purchase options, and photos of all the hexagonsGeneral
2. Information and Practice Hexagon – All the general details about the pattern including yarn, hooks, pattern notes, instructions to read charts, support videos and the practice hexagon.

This CAL is available for free on my blog and includes support videos on my ad-supported YouTube channel. The chart will be downloadable for free for 24 hours after each pattern release. You can keep up with the CAL on my website or any of my social media platforms. If you’d like to receive email reminders for each new hexagon release, you can sign up for my newsletter, and I’ll make sure you don’t miss any updates.

For an ad-free experience, you can purchase the Ebook version of this CAL on Ravelry or ThriveCart. Additionally, if you’re new to Tunisian-in-the-round or want to delve deeper into the technique, you can also purchase a course at a discounted rate when you buy the Ebook. All purchasing options are outlined here.

Video Tutorials

You can find the entire set of support videos in a playlist on my YouTube channel.

The hexagons in the Ipsa Blanket are joined using the mattress stitch. While there are no written instructions for this, I have created a tutorial video to show you exactly how I joined my hexagons. You can find the left and right handed videos above.

Joining Instructions of the Ipsa Tunisian Blanket CAL 2024 hosted by KnitterKnotter. This CAL includes 30 hexagons crafted using the in-the-round technique in a continuous spiral. The pattern is worked with a double-ended hook, and the colorwork is achieved through different stitches, eliminating the need to change colors in the middle of a round.
