Beginning Tunisian Crochet with Darla J. Fanton
Read Darla J. Fanton's bio here!
Tunisian crochet, also called afghan stitch, is enjoying renewed popularity…and it isn’t just for afghans! Everything in Tunisian crochet starts from one simple stitch. Explore traditional cross-stitch on a Tunisian base, as well as intarsia Tunisian where color changes are worked as you go. You can even use counted cross- stitch charts you already have for Tunisian projects! Learn to add texture with Tunisian knit and purl stitches. Experiment with oversize hooks, color placement alternatives that can make your work appear woven, alternate methods of working into the foundation chain, plus how to work with novelty yarns in this unique technique that is often referred to as the marriage of knit and crochet.
