INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL STITCHES
Tunisian Crochet: Each row of Tunisian crochet is worked in two steps, a forward pass and a return pass. Different Tunisian stitches (Tdc, Tss, Tks) are created while working the forward pass. The return pass is worked in the same manner for all stitches.
Forward Pass: The following stitches are worked, when indicated, during the forward pass.
Tunisian Double Crochet (Tdc): Yarn over, insert hook under next vertical bar and from front to back through fabric (between the front vertical bar and the back vertical bar), yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook.
Tunisian Knit Stitch (Tks): Insert hook under next vertical bar and from front to back through fabric (between the front vertical bar and the back vertical bar), yarn over and draw up a loop.
Tunisian Simple Stitch (Tss): Insert hook under next vertical bar, yarn over and draw up a loop.
Return Pass:
Yarn over and draw through first loop on hook, *yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * across. Do not turn.
 
NOTES
1. Tunisian crochet is worked with the RS facing at all times. Do not turn at ends of rows.
2. Each row of Tunisian crochet is worked in two steps, a forward pass and a return pass. The forward pass is worked from right to left with RS facing. Loops are picked up and placed on the hook during the forward pass. The return pass is worked from left to right with RS facing. Loops are worked off the hook during the return pass.
3. When a new skein needs to be added, add the skein at the beginning of the forward pass. Do not add a new skein in the middle of a row.
4. When beginning a forward pass, always skip the first vertical bar that is directly below the hook. At the end of a forward pass, insert hook behind both strands of last stitch. This creates a chain stitch look-alike edge.
WRAP
With Afghan/Tunisian hook and B, ch 68.
Row 1 (RS): With B,
Forward Pass: Insert hook in 2nd ch from hook and draw up a loop, *insert hook in next ch and draw up a loop; repeat from * across—68 loops on hook.

Return Pass: Work return pass.
Rows 10–12: With A,

Row 101: Ch 1, sc in each st across. Fasten off.
Border
Notes:
1. Across side edges of wrap, there are stitches that look like chains stitches. When working Round 1, count each "chain" as one stitch, and skip every other one. This will help ensure that the border lies flat.
2. Border can be worked with the Afghan/Tunisian hook or with a standard crochet hook.
3. Change color when working Round 1, so that color of border matches color of each section. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
Round 1 (RS): With RS facing, join B with sl st in last sc made, ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in same sc (corner made); working across side edge, ch 1, sk next st, *sc in next st, ch 1, sk next st*; repeat from * to * across to next corner, (sc, ch 1, sc) in corner; working across lower edge, ch 1, repeat from * to * across to next corner, (sc, ch 1, sc) in corner; working across 2nd side, ch 1, repeat from * to * across to next corner, (sc, ch 1, sc) in corner; working across top, ch 1, repeat from * to * across; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Ruffle Edge
