Tunisian Basics

Karen Whooley

Friday AM

Tunisian crochet is a crochet technique in a category all of its own. Worked in paired forward (picking up loops) and return passes (working off the loops), unique stitches of all kinds can be created. If you are a knitter wanting to learn crochet, Tunisian is the perfect way to learn to maneuver with a single hook. In this workshop, you will learn how to pick your hook size, work up a Tunisian stitch sampler scarf to lay the foundation for your Tunisian crochet adventures, and how to finish your work with lots of tips along the way. If time allows, how to increase and decrease will be included too!

Skill level: Beginner. Must know how to make a chain, yarn over and pull up loops on the hook.

Material Fee: $0
