Welcome to Square 25 of the Tunisian Crochet Blanket CAL of 2022! This is a bonus square that I designed for my blanket since I wanted it to be a square (5 x 5).

If you are new to Tunisian crochet, I hosted a CAL in 2020 that was designed to teach Tunisian crochet to beginners. If this one seems advanced, you are welcome to check that out and practice a few basic stitches before you come back to this one.

C1: Ballet and Purple Haze
To adjust width: Add / remove stitches as needed.
To adjust height: Add / remove rows in multiples of two, as needed.
- This pattern is written in English / US terms.
- See Colors section for the colors used in my block.
- The instructions below are only for the forward pass. The return pass for every row is the same:
- ch1, (yo, pull through two loops)* until one loop remains on the hook.
Foundation Row: With C1, chain 37.
Make the foundation row stitches in the back loops of the chain.
Row 1: With C2, efs, 35 exttrs, els.
Row 2: With C1, fs, 35 tss, ls
Rows 3 – 22: Repeat rows 1 and 2.
Row 23: With C1, fs, 35 trs, ls
This will be the bind off row. You will make a slip stitch every time you pick up a loop on your hook. There is no return pass for this row. Fasten off and weave in ends.
With a 6.5 mm hook, join C2 yarn in a stitch after any corner and make the border with the following pattern:
Round 1: Make 36 equally spaced single crochet stitches on each edge with 3 sc stitches in the corners.
Round 2: One round of hdc (half double crochet) stitches in back loop only – one hdc per stitch and 3 hdc stitches in the corners.
Round 3: One round of sc (single crochet) stitches in back loop only – one sc per stitch and 3 sc stitches in the corners.
I recommend blocking the square using your preferred method of blocking before joining with the rest of the squares to make a blanket.
Yardage and Size
My square is 12″ x 12″ in size (along the edges) and used about 120 yards (110 m) of yarn and weighs 1.5 oz (43 gms).
Front and Back
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.
