Crocheters are very excited about this special technique that opens many new options for creating all kinds of items. The look and feel is totally different from either knitting or regular crochet—Tunisian can be more firm and stretchy, but don’t be fooled into thinking it can’t be light and lacy too! Learn all the basic stitches and several advanced ones, and experiment with different yarns to see how they look in Tunisian crochet.
Technique Requirements: It is IMPERATIVE that you already be familiar with the basic crochet stitches and can perform them without additional help. This class will build on that knowledge, and will not be about the basics of crocheting individual stitches. Before you sign up for this class, ensure that you are comfortable holding yarn and hook and working basic crochet stitches or basic Tunisian Simple Stitch.
Supplies for Class:
Worsted-weight, smooth yarn (NO bumpy strands), one that allows you to really see your stitches. Bring Tunisian crochet hooks that are on the large size for this weight of yarn (about 1-2 sizes larger); check the yarn's ball band or ask at a yarn shop. Suggested Tunisian hook size is L/8mm or higher. Note: A Tunisian crochet hook is NOT the same as a standard crochet hook; it has a cord attached to the hook. Ask at your local yarn shop if you do not know what this is well before signing up for this class.
