Have you wanted to give Tunisian Crochet a try, but don’t have a Tunisian hook yet? Have you caught the Tunisian bug, but don’t know where to start? Have I got the project for you! Let’s try a Tunisian crochet project using a regular crochet hook! How about a Tunisian Crochet Sampler Scarf?
|First of all, what is Tunisian Crochet? Tunisian crochet is a form of crocheting that uses a long crochet hook. The long hook is necessary because as you crochet right to left (or left to right if you are left handed), the stitches are left on the hook, similarly to knitting. Then, to complete the row, you must crochet back, left to right (or right to left if you are left handed), finishing stitches as you return. Sometimes a Tunisian crochet hook will have a cord or tube attached to it, to hold the stitches for a longer project like an afghan. With many Tunisian crochet stitches, the finished fabric has a knit-look and the fabric is thick. I absolutely love the look of the Tunisian knit stitch in particular.|
