This is one of my first Tunisian crochet books. Naturally, it’s baby afghans because I really love baby afghans. I was just a wee baby designer when I sold these to Annie’s. After all this time, it’s still one of my favorite books.
It was quite by accident when I discovered the Tunisian Reverse Stitch and reintroduced it to the world with these afghans. Way back when I first introduced these books, no one was widely publishing in Reverse Stitch.
The introduction of these books is what really heralded a change in the way people responded to Tunisian crochet. The Reverse Stitch turned some heads and changed some minds.

It’s so wonderful knowing that I had a big part in changing the role of Tunisian crochet by throwing Reverse Stitch into the fray!
If you’re interested in trying out these baby blankets, you’ll only need to learn a few things in Tunisian crochet.
And that’s it! Once you learn those few things, you can make any of these gorgeous baby blankets!
Please note that the book itself calls the Reverse Stitch by the name of Purl Stitch. I’ve actually used the Reverse Stitch in this book, but the publisher called it Purl Stitch.
This is what I mean when I said above that this book is what heralded new and different things in Tunisian. We didn’t know what to call the stitch because it wasn’t in use! In my later books, I started reinforcing the use of the Reverse Stitch name and it’s in mainstream use now.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
