“I’d like to thank the Academy…” Learn a new technique in the afternoon & whip up something award-worthy while watching the oscars later that evening.
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: Know how to make a chain and a single crochet.
