Ohk I'm finally running behind... it just got too complicated to post yesterday. I just needed the time to stop.
This is one of those crafts that I will learn how to do. I never really understood it much so I went and bought myself a hook and started to give it a go. This turned into lots of fun. I also started doing research into what you can make with it and I learnt just how versatile it can be.
So what is Tunisian Crochet?
Also called Afghan crochet it uses an elongated crochet hook like a knitting needle with a stopper on the end. It's started like you would crochet but then the stitches are picked up and almost knitted. You never turn your work with tunisian crochet. It makes quite a heavy fabric that often is used to make blankets and the like.
This blanket is using tunisian entrelac! I think I may have to buy the pattern. You can get it here.
There is so much you can do with tunisian crochet you will have to explore it. I was amazed by all that is out there.
How to find out more
I found this lovely tutorial about how to do the basic stitches here.
You can search for more patterns on ravelry. They have some great stuff. Also check out pinterest but be wary on there.... Quite often while searching on there I found that I'd find something pretty and end up on dead links.
P.S. Join me later today for U :D
