This is the Youtube tutorial I used to learn the basic Tunisian stitch. It came from Crochet Geek-- I find her lessons to be clear and slow enough for me to follow haha!
Amendment: After crocheting one square in Red Heart "Cherry Cola," using the basic Tunisian stitch, I've decided to only crochet 4 in this color and pattern. They other patterns of this throw are too neat to pass up and the "cherry cola" color variation is cool but too dark for the direction I wanted to take this project.
So far I have 2 squares complete. If things continue to go quickly I will post my second stitch before Wednesday!!
