#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 20 – Block 14

All TSS again but with lots of colour changes. You use 3 colours and change each time you finish putting on and each time you finish taking off. It sounds confusing but once you get into it, then it makes sense. Faye said she had to keep reminding herself to actually do the colour changes, she said she was getting too over confident.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 20a – Block 35

Faye found this one easy however, confidence got the better of her and she had to frog several times because she wasn’t reading the full pattern and was forgetting to create the shells.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 19 – Block 8

The loops are a lot easier to work on this one than the block from week 4. When working the bobbles, insert your hook as you would for the TKS.

Your block will not look like the one in the pattern. There is an extra row of loops in the picture than are in the instructions.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 19a – Block 24

All TSS but you do need to change colours. You can carry the unused yarn along the back but I find it looks much neater if you just use a separate small ball and sew the ends in afterwards.

If, like me, you used extra rows in your plain TSS block, add some in as you go along so that the design sits in the middle.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 17a – Block 9

Although this block is one of the easier ones to make and there are no errors, I did find that it came out really tight. I ended up using a size larger hook.

If you do not have a larger Tunisian hook, don’t worry. As the blocks are so small, you can use a regular hook. Just take care that the stitches do not fall off the other end.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 18 – Block 10

A nice easy one this time, just TSS and chain. Faye’s notes also say “very easy, finished in 40 minutes”

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 18a – Block 7

Helen has to confess, she did not like this block. She could not get into a rhythm and it took her ages to make. It did not help that you have to flip back and fore between pages. Read the instructions carefully.

Faye, however totally forgot to keep notes on this block other than she only did 15 rows.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 17 – Block 28.

More bobbles and chain loops.  These chain loops are much easier to make that the ones we made in week 4.  When working past the chain loops in the next row, double check that you have picked up the correct vertical bars, it is easy to either miss some or pick extra.

Handy Hint

wp-1472571576161.jpg
Finding the last stitch

We were asked “Hi, does anyone know what I keep doing wrong with the end stitch of the squares please?”

By going to the very edge and picking up the last two strands you should still have 23 stitches. Just follow the above image left to right/top row/bottom row and you should be good to go.

#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 16 – Block 222016-10-07-21-12-31

Mostly TSS but with long stitches. When making the long stitches, insert your hook as for the knit stitch.

Faye discovered that she needed to change colour at the end of row 18, and repeat row 3 for row 19 before binding off.

This time you are creating shells using a UK treble. Faye kept forgetting to do the chains on the reverse pass.
