The Vintage Nursery Blanket is a a great on the go summer project. Make each 12 inch square separately and then seam them all together in your favorite way,to make an elegant retro blanket.

"The Tunisian Crochet Elephant Baby Blanket is a precious blanket pattern that is just right for a newborn, boy or girl! So, just perfect when the parents decided not to know the sex of the baby. Even if you are not an experienced Tunisian crocheter, I can guarantee you that you will not have any problems following this pattern. The entire blanket is worked up alternating two basic Tunisian crochet stitches, the Tunisian Knit Stitch and the Tunisian Reverse Stitch. The use of the Tunisian reverse stitch over the knit stitch creates in a tridimensional texture and creates our cute little elephant here and his hearts!"
However, as mentioned an Elements CAL bedspread can also incorporate the basic square as a central motif and build around it. Consequently, the bedspread “revolves” around the main square, with concentric rings around it.

Bees and beehives have been a recurring theme in my crochet life recently, and so have Tunisian crochet puffs. With the Tunisian Beehive Baby Blanket, I brought together my passion for bees and puffs to create this beautifully textured baby blanket. The pattern uses three different Tunisian crochet stitches that are the Tunisian simple stitch, the Tunisian reverse stitch, and the open Tunisian puff stitch. There is a tutorial on how to crochet the open puff stitch. You will need a Tunisian hook with a wire extension to accommodate the entire blanket.
