I am no expert. Not in regular crochet and most decidedly not in Tunisian crochet. But I want to share the bit I know, in case there are other yarn crafters who have never heard of it.
Tunisian crochet is made with one long crochet hook - much like a single knitting needle. The project is started with a chain crochet stitch. Just as I would start a traditional crochet project. But then, the next row is made by using stitches that retain the loops on the hook - like knitting. Followed by the next row of yarn over and pull through loop - like crochet.
The resulting swatch has a very unique look.
Because this Tunisian crochet material feels thicker than many of my crochet projects, I chose to use a yarn thinner than worsted weight.
I have been trying to find a project that I could use this amazing DK Colors yarn on. It is a size 3 yarn and so, so soft! I LOVE the colors. And have been wanting to use a "self-striping" skein of yarn.
The project shown above was meant to be a practice swatch. However, it is so pretty that I may turn it into a scarf.
I'm thrilled to have discovered Tunisian crochet and hope to be able to make some beautiful items using this style of crochet.
