Learning Something New
Yesterday I was given the task of learning Tunisian crochet and then teaching the other members of the craft group at next month's meeting. I have done Tunisian crochet before, but using only the most basic stitch. I had no idea there were so many possibilities! Tunisian crochet uses a long hook to pick up stitches right along the row, and then work them all off, to be left with one stitch on the right again. The variations come in the way the stitches are picked up. It's interesting how the different stitches give a different density to the fabric. There are some interesting stitches patterns that use two colours. I shall tackle those this evening.
