Learn Tunisian Crochet

Want to learn to Tunisian Crochet?  Then, this is a great resource book for you.

This book has excellent illustrations.  It has the best drawing of the last stitch in the forward pass that I have been able to find.  Knowing exactly how to create the last stitch in the forward pass ensures that your left edge is smooth and neat.

The author starts off discussing just what kind of hook one needs to do Tunisian crochet.

Next, she goes into tutorials on how to work Tunisian Crochet. Again,  her illustrations are top notch.  There is a chart for troubleshooting common problems.

Tutorials cover the following techniques:

  • The Foundation
  • The Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS)
  • Changing Colors
  • Bind Off
  • Tunisian Knit Stitch (TKS)
  • Tunisian Purl Stitch (TPS)
  • Yarn Over (YO)
  • Decreases
  • Increases
  • Changing Color
  • Gauge

I especially like that the author encourages the student to visit their local yarn store ( LYS) for assistance in selecting the right yarn for the projects.

The 13 projects are for all skill levels.

After the projects, there is a chapter on Techniques for an Attractive Finish.

I recommend you grab this book while it is still available.  I don’t think you will regret your purchase.  Unfortunately, like most publications, there is an errata sheet.

Enjoy Tunisian Crochet.
