You are more than welcome to follow this trend. Quite a few of my testers did! It yields a lovely checker-boardy pattern. But there is another easier way to use scrap-yarn for your blanket. Why not start with a ball of scrap yarn and then just add the new scrap yarn in when the old yarn runs out?
This way you will have less tails to work in and you can use absolutely every last scrap of scrap yarn. Some of us even buy more yarn when our scrap yarn runs out in the middle of a project, leaving us with MORE scrap yarn, not less. The last alternative is to make your blanket in a single colour. For this I suggest colour change yarn, preferably a yarn with fewer, longer colour changes. Although this is a blanket pattern, you can use it to make cushion covers, table runners, baby blankets, placemats and even rugs.

Chloe is only 9! Well done, Chloe, and thank you for sharing your awesome pillow with us! Your Ending Corners and Beginning Corners will remain unchanged. The resulting blanket will be longer than it is wide. The bigger your blanket is, the smaller the difference will become.
In Tunisian crochet you work each row forwards by picking up stitches in each stitch of the previous row and keeping them on your hook AND backwards by working the stitches off your hook again. Each row consists of a forward pass and a reverse pass and will typically be written like this:. For the first square I will keep to this format so that you can get the hang of it. For the subsequent sections Ending Corner, Beginning Corner and Middle Section the reverse pass will be indicated in bold.
To create the decreases in the Ending Corner and Beginning Corner of this pattern, you will skip the initial Ch-1 of the reverse pass. This will create what I will refer to as a diagonal bar see photo below. Only work into these diagonal bars when the pattern calls for it. When working the Middle Sections of this pattern you will also skip the initial Ch-1 of the reverse pass. Keep you tension loose!
And as an added bonus your work will curl a lot less if you keep your tension nice and relaxed. Please follow this diagram when deciding which section to work next. Do NOT just follow the Instructions below.
Pull up a loop in the second chain from the hook P hoto 2 and each subsequent chain stitch P hoto 3. You should end up with 10 loops on your hook. Ch 1 so yarn over and pull through one loop — see Photos 4 and 5. Skipping the very first vertical bar, pull up a loop in each of the 9 vertical bars across.

To do this, insert your hook into the next vertical bar, yarn over and pull up a loop P hotos Repeat this for each vertical bar. You should have 10 loops on your hook P hoto Your First Square will curl quite a bit Photo Photo 16 shows the First Square Completed. The diagonal loops formed by the decreases have not been included in the stitch counts in parentheses. In this section you will be working into the diagonal bars formed by the decreases in the Ending Corner section see the arrow in Photo 2 above.
Your blanket should look like this:. At the end of each row, you will need to draw up a loop in the last stitch of the relevant First Square Row. To do this you will need to insert your hook from front to back between the 2 horizontal bars see photo below of the last stitch of the First Square so that it catches the hidden back vertical loop. Just poke your hook in there and pull up a loop.
Inserting your hook in this way will ensure that you do not have unsightly holes running along this seam. If you find it too tricky to catch that hidden back vertical bar, you can always just insert your hook into the last vertical bar of each First Square Row and pull up a loop. Just bear in mind that this will cause holes along this seam. Draw up a loop in each of the 9 vertical bars of the last row of the Beginning Corner.

Draw up a loop between the 2 horizontal bars of the next row of the First Square Photo 1. You should now have 11 loops on your hook. Draw up a loop in each of the 9 vertical bars Photo 1. Draw up a loop in the next vertical bar of the first row of the First Square Photo 2. Draw up a loop in each of the 9 vertical bars. Draw up a loop through both loops of the first stitch of the first row of the First Square Photo 5. Draw up a loop through both loops of the first stitch of the next row of the blanket Photos 1 and 2.
Repeat this until you have worked into all the rows along the relevant side of the blanket. You will join the last row of the Middle Section to this ch-2 space. Draw up a loop in the ch-2 space in the corner of the blanket P hoto 5. When your blanket is as big or as small as you want it to be, STOP.
If you stop in the middle of a Middle Section, or at the end of an Ending or Beginning Corner, it will look too funny. For the binding-off row, sl st into each vertical bar across. To do this, insert your hook into the first vertical bar, yarn over and pull through the vertical bar AND the loop on your hook. Do this for each stitch across. When you get to the end, make a sl st into the ch-2 space and bind off.
It is by Kim Guzman. If you feel like it, you can always work a single round of single crochet all the way around the blanket. With a slip knot already on your hook, sc in any of the ch-2 spaces at the corners of the blanket. Sc, ch 1, sc in the ch-2 space at the corner. Turn your blanket 90 degrees. When you get back to the first corner, so the ch-2 space that you started in, sc, ch 1 in the ch-2 space. Sl st to the first stitch of the round and bind off.
