My Tunisian crochet pattern For intérieur (Deep down) is now available on Ravelry. It is a triangular shawl with a textured motif made with crossed stitches. I would say it is a rhythmic pattern. Do you recognize it? It is the project I used to illustrate my article about a simple blocking method.
This triangular shawl starts from one angle and ends at the opposite side. I really like this type of construction because it allows you to easily adapt the size of the shawl. Keep crocheting until you reach the size you like best or until you have no yarn left. Ideally use an interchangeable crochet hook. It allows you to switch to a longer cable as you progress in the project.
I made the prototype in Bio Balance by BC Garn, a mix of organic wool and organic cotton. It is a real pleasure to crochet with this yarn. It gives a soft and light fabric. I used a little less than 4 skeins, so approximately 900 m (984 yards) / 200 gr (7,04 ounces) of yarn.
Warning: on the yarn label the recommended needles and crochet hook size is 3 – 4 mm. For my Tunisian crochet shawl I used a 5,5 mm hook. I already mentioned it in a previous article, don’t trust yarn labels when you want to select the right Tunisian crochet hook size for your project. A hook that is 1 to 2 mm bigger is a good start. Make a swatch to be sure.
The pattern is available in French and in English (US terminology). It includes detailed instructions in tables and a schematic.
I added a photo tutorial at the end of the document to show simple but unconventional techniques step by step. So if you have the habit to print the patterns you plan to make, save ink and paper and check the document first. You can easily select the pages without photos.
I would like to warmly thank the testers who reviewed the content of the pattern and provided constructive comments to improve it. They made beautiful projects with different yarn types and colors. See their projects on Ravelry. And when you come across patterns and projects you like on Ravelry, don’t forget to save them in your favorites.
