Tunisian Crochet In The Round
This technique class will introduce students to the method of working Tunisian crochet in the round on a double-ended cabled hook. Students will also learn a new combination of Tunisian crochet stitches, and techniques for increasing while starting a pair of fingerless mitts that work up quickly and will make fabulous holiday gifts. For best results, students should have completed Tunisian Crochet Basics and Crochet II OR 1) be able to work Tunisian simple, knit, and full stitches without instruction; 2) have completed some simple Tunisian crochet projects on their own; 3) be able to work foundation single crochet without instruction. Stitches will be reviewed briefly but this is not a beginner's class.
