Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL 2022 – Square #19

Square 19 of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022 is a modified version of a blanket design by Janean Crapo. Janean is one of my dearest friends I’ve made after I became a designer. She began testing my patterns a while ago and this design is one of her many amazing ideas that she agrees to share on my blog 🙂

This square features Tunisian Lace and Honeycomb stitches and utilizes reverse pass color changes to make a beautiful pattern.

Square #19 of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022 hosted by KnitterKnotter. This square features Tunisian Full and Honeycomb stitches to create a picture frame and is made using 3 colors of the KnitPicks Preciosa Tonal Worsted yarn.

Border

Find the 4 corners of the square and mark them with stitch markers. With a 6.5 mm hook, join the yarn in a stitch after any corner and make the border with the following pattern:

  1. One round of (sc in next edge stitch, 2 sc in next edge stitch) with 3 sc stitches in the corners.
  2. One round of sc (single crochet) stitches in back loop only – one sc per stitch and 3 sc stitches in the corners.
  3. Rounds 3 and 4 – hdc (half double crochet) stitches in back loop only – one hdc per stitch and 3 hdc stitches in the corners.

Blocking

I recommend blocking the square using your preferred method of blocking before joining with the rest of the squares to make a blanket. 

My Square

An angled view of the 19th square of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022 that shows off the different stitches used in the pattern.
A close up of the center section of the `9th block of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022 hosted by KnitterKnotter. The Honeycomb section gives you a glimpse of the reverse pass color, giving the square its name.

Blocking

I used the stitch markers from Walnut Farm Design to keep track of my stitches and I wet blocked my square by soaking it in warm water and pinning it to my blocking mat until dry.

Blocking the 19th block of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022 hosted by KnitterKnotter. The block is pinned to four KnitIQ blocking mats using the Knitter's Pride Rainbow blockers and some Tpins. The square is blocked to 12" x 12".

Yardage and Size

My square is 12″ x 12″ in size (along the edges) and used about 123 yards (112 m) of yarn and weighs 1.59 oz (45 gms).

Important notes

The copyright for each pattern is held by the designer. You may ask for additional resources and tutorials from the designer of the square only. No one else can make a full tutorial of the pattern unless permitted by the designer. I have included my notes and links to my tutorials that I think might be helpful in making the square but those do not supersede the instructions and tutorials provided by the designer.
