Baby soft!

This is a blanket I made for someone who is having a baby using tunisian crochet. It's sort of a mixture between knitting and crochet. You use a looooong crochet hook and pick up all the stitches as you would on a knitting needle and then cast them all off again. I'm sure there are other patterns but this is the only one I know!
It makes a beautifully soft blanket if you use 4 ply wool and quite a thick needle. The crochet flower is just a bit of detail for fun!

It looks lovely! I've been wanting to try Tunisian crochet for ages, thanks for reminding me of it.

I have seen pics of how to do Tunisian Crochet in my old Golden Hands series but have never tried it before. It looks lovely!
