The world of Tunisian crochet is a fascinating one with endless possibilities! It’s easy to see how this technique continues to intrigue crocheters. Unlike standard crochet where each stitch is worked and finished as you go, Tunisian crochet stitches are picked up on a very long hook or cable in one direction. This is known as the forward pass. Then they are worked off the hook in the other direction, known as the return pass. This downloadable guide provides instructions for 33 different stitch patterns using this technique. You won’t want to miss it!
Be sure you don’t miss out on these popular crochet resources. They are the best of 2017!
Happy stitching and happy New Year!
