The Yarn

Choosing the Perfect Yarn for Your Tunisian Crochet Project

The first step in creating your Rohit Blanket is selecting the right yarn. I’ve found that worsted weight yarn is an excellent choice for this project, as it’s cozy and easy to work with, allowing you to crochet a blanket effortlessly.

Remember to keep in mind the intended use for your blanket, whether you want to make a throw blanket or a baby blanket, and choose a yarn that suits your needs in terms of color, texture, and durability.

I used Pound of Love by Lion Brand Yarn to make my blanket. This cozy yarn is available in a range of great colors and has terrific stitch definition. I used the beautiful color Waterfall for this blanket pattern. I’ve found that this particular yarn brand holds its shape very well. Personally, I prefer to block all of my blankets to make sure of this.

Tunisian crochet hooks

Selecting the Ideal Hook for Your Project

A Tunisian crochet hook is a must-have tool for this project. These specialized hooks are longer than traditional crochet hooks, allowing you to work with multiple loops at once. I used a hook from my Denise Interchangeable Hook Set to stitch this cozy blanket.

When choosing a Tunisian crochet hook, consider the size of the hook in relation to your chosen yarn, as well as the comfort and ease of use. A comfortable hook will make your Tunisian crochet project more enjoyable and help you maintain consistent tension throughout your work.

How to Avoid Curling

Tips for Preventing Curling in Your Tunisian Crochet Blanket

One common issue that crocheters often face when working on a first Tunisian crochet project, is curling. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this from happening! One effective method is to use the Tunisian reverse stitch, as I’ve used for the Rohit Blanket. This helps maintain a balanced tension and reduce the likelihood of curling. Additionally, blocking your finished blanket can help straighten out any remaining curl and give your blanket a neater look. Just follow the pattern, and you’ll be on your way to a beautifully finished, curl-free blanket!

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, I highly recommended that you 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.
