I finally got an Excellent for my filet. So pleased! And my shaped piece got a Very Good. This was because the corners were rounded as I’d only put 2 dc in each one.  I should have put in 3. I had been a little unsure about this and had gone for consistency, so it’s good to know.

20190314_111949As suspected I had got the wrong end of the stick on this one. I was meant to produce a square of Tunisian textured stitch, not textured stitches in a square. But it got a ‘Good’ anyway so not disappointed. My broomsticks got Very Good because my choice of yarn meant it split. Fair point. My edgings were excellent except the picot, as the tension of my foundation chain let me down again. It was Fine. When will I learn?

I’d completely forgotten about this piece. I think I may have misunderstood the brief, which says ‘Include Tunisian textured stitches within a square of Tunisian crochet.’ I have done t20190314_111949his very literally but maybe it means ‘a square of textured Tunisian’. I don’t mind if I have to do it again as I love the effect of Tunisian and am happy doing it on a small hook but I can’t find a way to do it comfortably on a long hook.
