Beginning Tunisian Crochet
With Natalie Kilkenny
Some call Tunisian crochet a marriage between knitting and crochet. Tunisian crochet produces a lovely and very sturdy fabric that can be used for many objects including garments and home decor such as pillow covers, coasters and place mats. Tunisian crochet projects are a great way to get rid of extra balls of yarn in your stash.
Date/Time: Saturday, Jan 7, 12-3pm
-OR- Saturday, Feb 11, 10am-1pm
Materials: A Tunisian crochet hook preferably size I US; Sturdy or non-splitting yarn to practice with at least worsted weight, larger if you’re using a bigger hook (no novelty yarns such as fur or boucle please); the 400-450 yards of the appropriate gauged yarn for your hook; a tapestry needle.
Prerequisites: Must be able to chain & single crochet.
Skills learned: Use a Tunisian crochet hook to make 4 different stitch patterns; Create entrelac type fabric with Tunisian crochet; Create a Tunsian crochet scarf with a sampler of different stitches

What is Tunisian Crochet? Why, it’s a fascinating variant of crochet that uses a very long needle that holds a whole row’s worth of stitches (sound familiar?) and creates a beautiful texture. Like so:tunisian5-blog-150x150
