Six-pointed star blanket uses the Tunisian Slant Stitch and color changes to create wide stripes which meet to form a burst of color that radiates from the center. The stripes are continued in the surrounding border.
Lacy panels are punctuated with small mirrors that catch the light to throw kaleidoscopic bits of shine around the room. Large motifs are joined as you go, then smaller motifs are joined in between, with double sides of mirrors crocheted into the center. These curtains are a great introduction to working with thread.
This innovative throw by Rhonda Davis uses Tunisian slant stitch to make sturdy star-shaped motifs and triangular inserts. The starfish are caught in a netting of Tunisian double crochet and bordered in a rope-like stitch. Two sizes of crochet hooks balance the dense interior and looser netting for a light throw with drape.
Soft, striped, and comfortable, this afghan is made using Tunisian simple stitch for the body and the same stitch as part of an entrelac pattern for the border. Warm colors evoke sitting by a fire in a winter cabin, and versatile colorwork opens up possibilities for any season, decor, or mood.
