Tunisian Crochet with Lisa Daehlin

The technique of Tunisian Crochet is a Hybrid of Crochet & Knitting, resulting in a fabric with a woven quality. Learn how to make the basic Tunisian Crochet stitches (simple/knit/purl), and expand those skills to incorporate the use of two colors and to create a variation in lace.   Materials: crochet hook (size h, i or j), 2 small balls of dk or worsted weight yarn (different colors).  Prerequisite: No skills needed…only the desire to learn about this gorgeous fabric.

A continuing education faculty member at The Cooper Union, she has the distinction of being the first teacher of knitting and crochet courses at this historic institution. She also teaches in the Studio Arts Workshop at Newark Museum.
