Halfway point, and it's finally starting to look like something.

Sthon,

Welcome!  Smile

If you've chosen a "standard stitch," this is a single crochet if you're in the US and a double crochet if you're in the UK.  (Because of the difference between the two, we call it "standard stitch.")

Tunisian is using Tunisian crochet and filet is filet crochet.  Smile

Since you're new, I'm guessing you've chosen the "standard stitch."

Oh    my    G O D..

This is AMAZING Sherry..
My patience is not for this kind of work.. Wish it was though.. I have a Spiderman obsessed 4 year old, and a Captain America obsessed 5 year old... Sigh...

I will continue my stuffed animals :p

Line,

Thank you so much. Kiss
When my kids were young, I wouldn't have been able to concentrate on something like that either, I did the stuffed toys and such in the couple of hours after they went to bed.

But the kids are all grown now, and some of the grandkids are grown, with babies of their own. I have the time.

This one has been finished and sent off to it's new home, for yet another grand baby due in just a few days.

Here is the finished pic I got while blocking it.

Line,

LOL, perhaps this site isn't exactly child-friendly...for very unusual reasons!  SurprisedWink

Seriously, just a thought...you could crochet a basic solid-color blanket and do the design in cross stitching.  It wouldn't look exactly the same, but it would still look nice.  Smile

Line,

Lol Kiss, seriously though the easiest way would be what Melanie suggested. Many years ago that's how we did it, just work up an afghan in tunisian (afghan stitch) and then cross stitch on the squares. You can even get a lot more detail in with cross stitch, too.
The lettering on this one is cross stitched, just to give you an idea of the look.

Melanie, 

No.. Not very kid friendly.. At least not very #parents-that-has-kids-with-long-eyes-friendly.." Damnit.. :p 

Yeah.. I COULD crochet a basic blanket, and cross stitch the stuff on it.. But that is not very likely to happen either..  :p I am soooo lazy when it comes to blankets and such... So much work.. It borres me :/


Sherry

I didn't even notice the difference to be honest.. :p

Line,

Maybe teach the kids to crochet for themselves?  Wink  They could really get to working on your WIPs, which could cut it way down so you can add more to it...  Laughing

Always thinkin'!  Laughing

I hear you...large projects like blankets, especially with just a basic single crochet stitch or a Tunisian stitch, can get so boring so fast.  Frown

Teaching the kids to crochet their own things is sounding better and better, right?  Wink  LOL.
