Tapestry Crochet

I have a love of tapestry crochet. There, I admitted it to someone…counts, right? What I don’t like, are the patterns I’ve come across that have you make the “canvas” part of the blanket and then go back and cross stitch over the top. What a waste of time! I’d rather put the picture in it while working on it, less work! I did my first graphgan/tapestry blanket from a premade pattern, the person did all the row counting for me. It was also the first time that I’d ever done Tunisian crochet. It was an American flag in a heart and it turned out cute; small, but cute. From there, I started creating my own graphs and row counts.

My first graph and row count was an American Flag Eagle. It turned out exactly as I had hoped it would! American Eagle Blanket

Seriously, how cool is that?  If you’re interested in making one of your own, the pattern can be purchased here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flying-american-eagle-blanket

From there, I did a butterfly:

Cool, huh? This pattern can be purchased here: Butterfly Blanket

Currently, I have 2 Mystery Crochet Alongs going on (or starting soon) over in my ravelry group: Group

One is for a Girly Blanket and is free! We are about halfway through, but please feel free to join! Here’s the pattern.

The next one begins March 1, 2015 and is called Down on the Farm MCAL. It’s $5 for the pattern, but if you use coupon code: FarmerBrown at checkout its free until February 15th, 2015!

I hope to see you over in my Ravelry group enjoying some mystery projects or just trying to learn a new technique!

Talk to you soon,
