Tunisian Crochet Baby Blankets Giveaway!

If you haven't seen Sharon Silverman's new book yet, you're in for a treat! Eight beautiful Tunisian baby blankets including cables, ripples, stripes, bobbles and basket weave. There are four "easy" designs, three "intermediate" and one "intermediate plus". There is truly something for everyone. And what's really great is that there are also online technique videos available to help should you need them. 


The gorgeous afghan pictured on the cover is called "Color Waves". I love how crisp and fresh this one is in a classic, traditional style. What baby wouldn't love this?


Another classic is the "Basket Weave Blocks" using two colors. This would be the perfect gift for any little boy using the blues shown in the photo or equally attractive using two shades of pink or colors to match the baby's nursery.


Don't you just love this chubby baby? I can't help but smile every time I look at this picture. The "Frosted Stitch Stripes" uses clusters and Tunisian Simple Stitch to create this beautifully textured throw. 


While I love all the designs in this book, the "Bright Strands" is my very favorite! If you're looking for an incredibly unique blanket with loads of visual interest, this is the one for you! 

To see the rest of the blankets, please visit Leisure Arts. You can download a copy right away and get busy stitching! The hard copy will be available soon as well. I would also like to invite you to enter our giveaway and you might just win a copy of this great book! Leave a comment on this blog telling me which blanket is your favorite! You can also earn two more entries by visiting and "liking" Sharon's Facebook page and tweeting about the giveaway! Good luck everyone! a Rafflecopter giveaway
