Free Tunisian Crochet Diamond Square Pattern For A Stunning Blanket
I am so excited to be bringing you this Tunisian Crochet Diamond Square pattern. Not only because it is gorgeous, but also because it is part of a great collaboration.
I’m one of 24 designers taking part in the Tunisian Crochet CAL. It has started on January 5th, 2022 and ends on November 23rd, 2022. So there is still plenty of time to catch up and join in this CAL.
A new Tunisian crochet square by a different designer will be launched every 2 weeks.
By the end of 2022, you’ll have made a very special blanket from 24 completely unique Tunisian crochet squares, each designed by a different designer.
How cool is that! Arunima from Knitter Knotter is the organiser of this fun event. Visit the main CAL page on her blog to check out all the other squares.
Tunisian Crochet CAL Details
The squares will be released every two weeks and the free pattern will be available on the designer’s blog (or as a free PDF download if the designer chooses to offer it that way instead).
However, you can also purchase the pattern bundle of all 24 squares. You will receive the PDF version of all the squares as they are released (you pay less than a dollar per pattern)!
This is a mystery CAL so, if you purchase the bundle, you will NOT receive all the patterns at once. You will receive a new pattern every 2 weeks as the squares are released in the CAL.
This way, you will have all the PDF versions of the patterns stored safely on your device at your convenience.
So, even if you can not make that week’s pattern because life gets in the way, you can grab it when you are ready.
