I decided to try a pattern I found on Garn Studio's web page. It is for a sweater, and I liked the look of it - but as I was not knitting, nor am I a good knitter, I felt I'd try the snowflake design in Tunisian.
Note that I only did the pattern repeat - just wanted to see how it would turn out - I had it slated for a doggie sweater, but never did get around to finishing it off.
So, as a crocheter, you can pick up patterns that are graphed for knitting. I used a MoEZ Tunisian hook which would probably be about size P or O. Knitting graphs are notoriously elongated when crocheted, but in this instance it didn't look real bad! Sometimes when translating to Tunisian you might want to drop a row here and there to keep from getting the stretched out look - no real formula for it, just do what you can do!
This particular pattern was made with the intarsia technique, carrying the yarn along behind. I think none of the stitches are over four or five in either color, except for the navy where only one row is without white. Looks like more, eh? :o)
I really do have to figure out something to do with this little gem...it's just sitting in a bin. :o(
