"Queen of spades" cropped cardigan in Tunisian Crochet

THE MAKING OF A LOVELY CARDIGAN IN TUNISIAN CROCHET In the last little while, as you may have noticed, I have been working on an ambitious project: the creation of a Tunisian crochet garment, using a leaf motif (or "spades", as I preferred to call it) already seen in some wonderful knitting projects. First, I thought about replicating the spade pattern in Tunisian crochet, which was not difficult, as I have created similar patterns before - you can find them, for example, in these projects of mine: Leaf it On Shawl , Leaf it On Scarf , Leaf it On Cowl .  Leaf it On Scarf Next, I thought it best to make a garment that had a simple workmanship, i.e. worked flat, and not in the round, to avoid, at least initially, over-complicating the design.

Do you know how I came up with the idea of a crochet armrest cover? I have a naughty little black cat (devilish beast!) who started scratching its nails on the sofa posts. Now my sofa is no longer new, but I hated how it systematically got ruined by the cat. So I thought of creating crochet covers for the armrests using the granny square stitching technique. Why? Because it is extremely flexible: you can make smaller or bigger squares, according to the dimensions of the armrests you need to cover, and you can easily adjust size, making rectangles or just adding rows to the square. But of course, if you think of all the beautiful crochet square designs around you can only imagine how many beautiful armrest covers can be created.
