Sun blanket square Tunisian crochet pattern
Use this fun and easy pattern to make a sun square for a blanket or a pillowcase.
Make several and seam them up for a sunny blanket, or turn two of them into a sunny summer tank top. Add extra rows around for a larger square.
The finished square should measure 30 by 30 cm or 12 by 12 inches.
If the square comes out smaller, you can modify the last section to increase the size, following the instructions provided before the last section.
