Tunisian Crochet Garden Trellis Square – Free Pattern & Tutorial

The Tunisian crochet Garden Trellis Square is my new 8″ afghan block for my square sampler blanket, which is one of my oldest wips (works in progress).

One day, I am sure that I’ll start seaming and make a nice blanket out of all the squares I’ve been piling up over the last 2 years.

In the meantime, I enjoy the fun and try to come up with new patterns to add to the collection.

Even though this new Tunisian crochet square might look a bit complicated, and it uses lace stitches (who’s afraid of Tunisian lace patterns?!), it is actually very easy and fun to crochet.

The stitch used for this square is the Tunisian Trellis Lace Stitch, and I prepared a detailed photo tutorial here. I also made a video tutorial, which you can find on my YouTube channel here.

Alright, let’s get started!

Charity Cozy Fall Blanket CAL

The pattern of the Garden Trellis Square is featured in the Charity Cozy Fall MAL (Make ALong) organized by Hortense from Knitting with Chopsticks and Noorain from Noor’s Knits.

The aim of this event is to raise money to donate to CURE Childhood Cancer.

The way we’re raising money is by selling 2 bundles, one for crocheters and one for knitters, each with 20 square patterns for a cozy and nice blanket!

Cozy Fall Crochet Blanket Squares Bundle

Contribute to the cause by buying the Crochet Cozy Fall Blanket Squares Bundle HERE or the Knit Bundle HERE.

How Can You Contribute to this Charity Event?

Of course, buying the bundles is not the only way you can contribute. Here are a few other ways!

  • The fastest way, which I prefer most of the times, is to head over the CURE Childhood Cancer donate page HERE and make a direct donation to the foundation. You can decide how much to donate and make a little difference in this world!
  • One other way is to crochet or knit a blanket and auction it for charity. Then, donate the money you make! This can be a nice and fun way to raise some awareness among your family and friends, and who knows that more people will contribute to CURE Childhood Cancer or another charity organization…
