It’s finally done! Can you believe it? I’m totally doing a happy dance right now! I definitely can’t call it my Never-ending Nightmare Stashbuster Blanket anymore though, so I’m going to call it my Reversible Rainbow blanket.
After this, it’s probably going to be a very long time before I do anything with Tunisian crochet again. Now that it’s done though, I actually really like it. I think I know who I’m going to give it to, and I hope they really like it as well!
I’m so glad that Claire from Mollie & Claire had the wonderful idea to start a finish-along. I never would have made it through this project without the deadline and all the encouragement. I still have 15 days left, so I may try to finish another old WIP as well…but that’s a post for another day.

If you’ve never tried Tunisian crochet, it’s an interesting technique. It’s like a cross between knitting and crocheting and you can create all sorts of fun textures and patterns with it. A blanket worked lengthwise probably wasn’t a wise choice for my first try, so I’m a bit burned out on it now, but will probably come back to it at some point.
Crochet designer Kim Guzman has written several great books on the topic. Her Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Tunisian Crochet and the Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide are both available as e-books on Craftsy.
I hope you give Tunisian a try if you haven’t already!
