I created this free pattern in the frame of the “Tunisian blanket CAL” organized by KnitterKnotter, alias Arunima, in 2021. It’s a Tcal during which several Tunisian crochet designers all around the world publish instructions to make squares in Tunisian crochet throughout the year. At the end of the year all these squares are meant to be seamed together to make a big blanket. For more details about the Tcal, follow KnitterKnotter. She’s the host centralising all patterns created by the participating designers.

Vaillance, a seamless shrug

Today I published my pattern Vaillance on Ravelry. It’s a seamless shrug made in Tunisian crochet. Actually, it is more a shoulder-warmer than a shrug. Indeed, this garment is not meant to cover the front part of the bust. The pattern is available in 5 sizes: XS, S, M, L and XL.

TCAL Play with color

In August, the Ravelry group Tunisian crochet explorers organizes its first TCAL. The theme is “play with color”. Want to join? Read more about it in this article.

Testing patterns

Did you know that many knitting and crochet patterns are tested before their release? I find this is a crucial step before adding a pattern to my Ravelry shop. What is it about? How does it work? What’s the added value? Well, it depends on the design, the pattern, the designer and the tester. In this article I’m telling you about the main elements I find important in this process.
