Tunisian Crochet Basics
Do you love crochet, but sometimes feel a bit jealous of the projects your knitting friends make? Tunisian, or African, crochet is a blend of crochet and knitting techniques that result in knit-like finished fabrics. Learn the subtle differences in the construction of Tunisian stitches while developing your Tunisian pattern and chart-reading skills. This is a technique class, where we'll swatch different stitch patterns.
Prerequisite: Crochet I or

- 100 yards total of smooth, plain, light-colored worsted weight yarn in a minimum of 2 colors. Wool or wool blend or cotton/cotton blend are preferable. PLEASE DO NOT use single or chain ply yarns, black or very dark colors, white, or variegated yarns, flat tape-like yarns, novelty yarns, slubby yarns, or anything with a halo/fuzz such as mohair. These yarns make it very difficult for students to read their work while learning new stitches.
