Introduction

It took me 3 nights of Tunisian crochet but it was worth it.
It's a combination of 3 different Tunisian Crochet stitches (a 3 row pattern stitch), and let me add that it's very easy to follow.

The variegated yarn and the texture completes the look. The big hook makes this wrap works up fast.
