Watch Your V’s for Clues — Knitting Techniques for Tunisian Crochet
An in-person class with Victoria Light
Nov 12, 9:00am-12:00pm PST
Did you know that certain knitting skills transfer really well to Tunisian crochet? This class will feature handy tricks for your Tunisian projects, such as Long Tail Cast On, (Faux) I-Cord, Kitchener Stitch, and more!
Although considered a hybrid between standard crochet and knitting, Tunisian crochet uses (for the most part) techniques that clearly derive from crochet not from knitting. Foundation chains, many stitch patterns, and finishing off are examples. But certain skills associated with knitting transfer really well to Tunisian crochet.
This class will feature handy tricks for your Tunisian projects, such as Long-Tail Cast-On, Provisional Cast-On, Kitchener Stitch, surface stitches, (Faux) I-Cord, transferring stitches, and the infamous “I Ran Out of Yarn” Bind-Off — all without a knitting needle in sight.
