It's cold outside and the new seasons of TV shows are soon to begin. What a perfect time to start a new craft! I would suggest Tunisian crochet. Tunisian crochet is a beautiful and versatile stitch technique that borrows elements from both knitting and crochet, creating a pleasing fusion of the two techniques.
If you are familiar with crocheting, a tunisian crochet hook is longer than a regular crochet hook. It has a hook at one end and a knob at the other end to hold the stitches on the hook.
Unlike regular crocheting, Tunisian crochet, stitches are picked up and held on the hook for the first part of the row and then worked off the hook for the second part of the row.
This book is one way you can learn the technique. It also has many patterns and even an instructional DVD. Click on the picture below to be connected with Amazon Market Place and check out this book!
