Tunisian Throw -how to

   In an effort to de-stash some yarn an easy way to do that is a stash buster blanket (aka Tunisian Throw)....

  I have about 10 skeins of this Moda Dea, Vision and the other yarn is Red Heart Fiesta both are worsted weight yarns.  The crochet hook is a size N/9.00 mm.   I am working in Tunisian simple stitch for 2 skeins then I change to the other yarn and work in the Tunisian Knit Stitch for 5 rows.  Here is my pattern...

Chain 100.

Pull up loop from each chain and work the basic return (Yo, pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through 2 loops until 1 loop remains).
 TSS in each stitch across and return.
Work as many rows as you wish then change color.
TKS in each stitch across and return.
Work 5 rows or as many as you wish then change color.
Repeat pattern to de-stash and create a cozy throw.

Enjoy!
