Easy Tunisian Crochet
With Barry Klein
Feb 5, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Tunisian Crochet is experiencing a resurgence! It creates a unique fabric and can be just the ticket to “trying something different.” Barry will help you get started with the basic elements so you can move on and learn more.
For those of you who have held a crochet hook but want more, let’s take a Tunisian-style hook and create something different.
Tunisian Crochet stitches require two rows of work (across and back). Starting from the basic chain, Barry will introduce you to the two-row technique and help you become comfortable with holding the hook and yarn, and learning how to read the stitches so you stay on count.
Once you understand the basics, he will discuss what comes next and what is involved with going forward.
