Mind you, Nikki gives some great advice on watching your tension so you don’t end up with a disproportionate blanket. This is a great baby shower gift you can make for that expectant mom.

    I hadn’t heard it called Tunisian crochet, but afghan stitch. Many years ago I made an afghan stitched baby blanket and cross-stitched a zoo animal scene on it, I found the pattern in a library book when I lived in Manhattan, KS. Do you know I haven’t seen the book in any other library and in all the moving I did–the blanket got LOST!!! I know, how sad…I’d still like to find the pattern again and remake it. Just a pipe dream, I suppose…I really enjoy Tunisian projects…Thanks.

    Thirty years ago my mother made a Tunisian baby afghan with cross stitched
    zoo animals for my daughter. We are not able to locate the pattern. We would appreciate your help.

    Thank you,
    Linda G

    The pattern is on page 136 of The Great Afghan Book by the American School of Needlework published by Columbia House in 1981. There are copies for sale at various sites on the web. …one was at E-bay for $9. It is hard cover. What luck. The pattern was in the second book I looked in… and I have hundreds of crochet books.
