8091 No skills required Tunisian Crochet 101
Tunisian crochet is almost a hybrid of crochet and knitting but only requires only one hook as you create fabric. One row worked a row of stitches onto the hook, then next row crochets them off for a texture unique to this technique. Sheila will demonstrate the basic techniques as you practice using Clover's new interchangeable Tunisian Crochet hooks and cords.
Note: Knowledge of basic crochet stitches helpful.
