Peaches & Creme Yarn in Tunisian Crochet

A member of my Yahoo group and Ravelry was asking about TC with Peaches and Creme... a worsted/aran weight cotton yarn.

This is one project I used TC with a lacy open stitch Arrowhead Netting.
The pattern for this blanket is in the booklet: Arrowhead Netting, that includes instructions for one method for creating Round objects.

TCAL Inspiration

I will be doing a Tunisian Crochet A-Long (TCAL) through my Yahoo group starting January 18, 2009.
This is the inspiration for the upcoming piece.
It is a Knitted Sweater pattern produced by the Reynolds Yarn Co, Townsend, Massachuesetts, 2004. The title of the pattern is Rapture #82287.
Now, my piece will be done in Tunisian Crochet, and will look much different, since I will be using different stitch combinations and adding some cables to the design....
However, this is my inspiration for the TCAL.
The TCAL will be designed so that you can create a piece to fit your needs, using yarn from your stash.
I will be creating a piece that will eventually become the back for a sweater coat similar to this sweater.
