Tunisian Crochet Jumper

Currently following a sleeve pattern, chain 30, increase every 5th row at both ends until row 58, so far so good. Im also playing around with two colour crochet to get an interesting stripped pattern on the go.

Transformers Tunisian Crochet Progress

The Transformers Tunisian Crochet is coming along nicely, unsure what to make it in to...a pillow, a wall hanging...only two more squares to stitch and then it will be complete letter N and E. Over the course of making this piece i have learnt that tunisian crochet is alot eaiser than i first thought, yet keeping the tension when adding in so many colours is tricky, so i decided to make alot of the letter designs alot simpler.

Transformers Tunisian Crochet

I really like the fairisle designs in knit wear and i was trying to replicate them, however i can only crochet and i found it too hard...untill i discovered tunisian crochet, a sort of cross between crochet and knitting, thankfully still only using one hook.

After getting into it I have designed and started to make 19 x 19 stitch swatches in the theme of Transformers, thinking of making it into a patchwork pillow...So far i have crocheted and the autobot and decepticion logos, a tape, and im currently working on megatrons face...
