Afghan or Tunisian crochet is something brand-new to me-I only just tried if for the first time this afternoon (5/12/1999) and found out how easy it is and how fun it is to do. I decided to whip up a pattern and to my amazement, it worked out okay without too much ripping.
I have never seen printed instructions for Afghan/Tunisian crochet and I'm not sure how they're written in the first place, so I wrote them out literally just like in a regular crochet pattern (I relied heavily on some instructions from a crochet magazine.) I also improvised an edging to be worked around the perimeter with the contrasting color. Enjoy and I hope you like it! :)
Small amount of Lustersheen yarn (blue)
Small amount of contrasting Lustersheen yarn
Crochet hook, size G
Gauge: I have no idea how to measure a gauge in afghan (tunisian) crochet, but I don't think it's too important with this pattern
Fasten off and sew in ends and if needed, lightly press with a warm iron.
That's it and I hope my terminology isn't too misleading. Also, I do not own an afghan hook, but I made this with just a regular crochet hook.
