This throw is stunning. The colors here are mezmerizing and beautiful to look at. Perhaps when I complete the throw I am working on right now, this may be the next one I attempt.

I wonder if anyone ever looks at these comments and answers questions about the pattern. I noticed all comments are so old. If someone does look at them, I need help with Square 4C as I can't understand the instructions to Square C and can't figure how to join my finished 3A Square which I did not finish off like Square A said to the 4C Square I've yet to make. Those instructions to Square C don't make a bit of sense.

This Tunisian Seascape Throw is true to its name as the design depicts the colors of the sea and the emotions that the sea awakens in all of us. This throw was carefully design to give an illusion of movement of waves and colors. Thanks for the pattern which is easy to understand and complete with diagram. Cheers!

The skill level for this crochet project but the finished Tunisian Seascape Throw looks like it took the expertise of an experienced crocheter to accomplish this. After reading the directions, I am not too convinced that it is a project that should be labeled easy. Beautiful results.

With the leaves turning Fall colors here in South Africa my mind is turning towards throws and afghans. Initially I was a bit daunted by this design but having done a small sample of the pattern it really is Easy! It is beautiful too and now that I am in the process of thinking what colors to use I am becoming impatient to start making it already. In my family we all love snuggling under throws and afghans in our family room in winter and this lovely throw is going to be the perfect addition.

It should have been called "fishscales" instead of "seascape" in my opinion.

I dont understand where to start/place Square C.

Did you ever find out how to do Square 4C in this afghan to get it joined to 3A? I am stuck and can't go farther until I find out and I can't understand the instructions for Square C. It sounds Greek to me. Any help would be appreciated.

I can't believe how dumb I am today! But I can't even understand "Row 1 Return". I have my initial 21 stitches. Twenty-one being the operative. If I draw thru 1 = 20 left yo draw thru 2 loops x 8 (16) = 4 left. Soooo, how am I supposed to yo draw thru 2 loops x 9? I must not be reading it right or just really stupid. Please help.

Never mind! I walked away then tried it again and it worked. Just a dumb moment. Hopefully, I won't be stupid while continuing. I agree with another post that this is very loose with such a large hook.

Here is a picture taken while blocking. For the folks saying it came out lopsided, you have to block it. If your stitching is even, it should turn out fine.

Made this in kitchen cotton. Yeah, I know, sounds weird, but one of my sons absolutely loves the feel of it and had been begging me to make a blanket for him with it. I had to add quite a few more rows because of having to use smaller hook, but it came out amazing.

I do love this pattern, it says "easy", however I am confused about transition from square A to B. B is supposed to have 11 sts, mine only comes out to 9 sts. Any idea what I do wrong?

Row 1 of Square C is confusing! Can anyone clarify exactly where to join to start Square C?

From the pictures, this afgan looks very solid but when working it with the recommended hook size, it actually seems very loose. I love the colors in the photo but since my living room is more of a Lodge theme with greens browns, I opted for the Red Heart Woodsy color which was VERY unattractive worked in this pattern. I returned 6 of the 7 skeins to the store and ripped out all the worked yarn and added it to my stash. Too bad...I LOVE the look of this pattern.

Mine turned out lopsided.

Discouraging as I followed the directions and it turned out lovely, but very LOPSIDED. Am a sucker for punishment, trying to make another and make changes so it won't be misshapen. Will make a good car seat cover.

Would like to print this pattern.

I learned about Tunisian crocheting about a year ago and I have enjoyed it so much. I love this seascape pattern so much. Very lovely :)

This pattern has beautiful colors! I wonder if there is a list of colors, yardage, and a layout of each different numbered squares? It looks so FUN!

rosiem3720335, if you click on the word "SCHEMATIC" under the materials, and then scroll down you will find a drawing with the pattern laid out.

I am visual in my learning...would love to see some pics on the steps for this stitch pls :)...thanks...
