The Bobble Pop blanket is a colourful crochet blanket pattern, designed to use up lots of leftover yarn in a fun and practical way.
This year I have been working through my yarn stash looking for ways to use up leftover yarn which creates something attractive and useful. I hate waste, so this project really worked for me.
At Yarndale this year, I picked up a 12mm tunisian crochet hook (double ended for luck) because I had never seen one that large before and was intrigued to see how chunky tunisian crochet would work up.
Finally I got round to using it so I wanted to share my creation. I have written up the pattern I used for anyone wanting to have a pop at Tunisian Crochet simple stitchKeep Reading
